Hi everyone. Today's card is a reminder that there's still time to enter the current challenge at Time Out Challenges (#15 - Stamping with an optional twist of Apples). This is such a fun challenge ... I hope you'll join in.
As you can see, I didn't use the optional twist, but I did stamp this beautiful daisy from STAMPlorations and colored it with Copics. I followed the idea of the cut out panel technique by Maile Belles, although I didn't follow her instructions completely. Instead, I stamped, colored and cut out my daisy image and attached to a card front with an "H" cut. It seemed easier and I love the way it looks, exposing the strip of pretty embossing in-behind. I added some gold stickles to the center of the flower for some sparkle and shine ... and stamped a simple sentiment to finish.
