Summer Daisy


Hi everyone.   Love the colors from the Color Challenge at SCS (#489 - bermuda bay, pool party, calypso coral) so wanted to play along.  This is also a reminder that the latest challenge at ATS&M #106 is Anything Goes.

And I'm entering this card into Simon Says - Anything Goes, and Merry Monday where they are having a Birthday Hop for LeAnne ... Happy Birthday LeAnne!!







The daisy is watercolored using diluted reinkers for the petals, stem and base of the center ...  and undiluted for the highlighting and shading on the petals and center.  I also added little dots of dazzling details (clear glitter glue) for the center to make it sparkle.

A clean and simple card with just a white frame popped up on the base and the flower popped up on top of the frame.  The sentiment is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink.







Stamps:  Graceful (Penny Black); Happiest Birthday Wishes (SU!)
Paper:  White (Neenah); Watercolor (Arches 140lb. cold press)
Ink:  Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Calypso Coral (SU!); Staz-on Black
Accessories & Tools:  Paint Brush, Dazzling Details, Square Nesties (Spellbinders)


Challenges:
SCS Color Challenge #489

What a classy card Loll, love the contrast between the bright flower and the white background. So clever to use the blue greeting, it makes the orange sing!
