Two daisies

I'm still playing "catch-up" for this week's challenges.  Today's card is for Friday's "Free For All" Challenge at SCS - F4A127 - seeing double - include two of something on your card.  I chose to use the new "Reason to Smile" set from SU!  Just love those gerbera daisies!  I used the marker layering technique for the flowers and then simply framed it with Spellbinder's Postage Stamp nestie.  Hope you like.

"Daisy Thanks"


Stamps:  Reason to Smile, Sincere Salutations (SU!)
Paper:  White, Bella Rose DP (retired) (SU!)
Ink:  Staz-on Black, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Real Red (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  blender pen, Nestabilities Postage Stamp (Spellbinders), glue, and dimensionals



I stamped the daisy twice in Staz-on Black ink onto Whisper white cardstock.  I used my blender pen and inks to color in the flowers (for instructions on marker layering, click the link on the Techniques Page).  I stamped the sentiment in black ink.

I ran my main image through my Big Shot with the second largest postage stamp nestie.  I die-cut two more of the same size from the white cardstock and then glued the three layers together, with the stamped image on top (to give the die some weight).  I did the same with the largest postage stamp nestie, die-cutting one layer from the Bella Rose DP and two from white and gluing them together.  Both panels are popped up with dimensionals.

I stamped one daisy image on the inside panel and colored it in the same way as the main image.

The pair of gerbera daisies is certainly a good reason to smile! Beautifully placed and framed!
