Daisy Just For You

Hi everyone.  Here is my design team card for the latest challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More #48 - Addicted to Colors (Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, Perfect Plum) - or any colors that are similar.  I used a sweet image from our sponsor (Di's Digi Designs) and colored with Copics.  I paper pieced the flower and then added more dimension by using the paper tole technique (see tutorial here), and adding flower soft for the center.  A bit of twine to finish.  Hope you like.

  1. Just too precious. Love the extra touches of flower soft (which I do not do well!) and your flower piecing & shading. This is an adorable image. TFS & will look to see if you have tutorial on tole shading. Sounds interesting.

  2. Now that is the best use of Flower Soft I have ever seen. You are going to single-handedly revitalize that whole industry with this darling card, Lolly!!

  3. This is beautiful, Loll! I have no idea what flowersoft is but Mr Google will help me. Great card! xx

  4. "Ain't She Sweet"! Or "Cute as a Button"! Really Loll, a very cute image beautifully colored and paper pieced. Love the added twine. TFS

  5. Paper to me technique? Will have to look that up!! Adorable card and love the rich four of the flower x

    1. Hi Sandie. It's paper tole technique and I have added a link to my tutorial on how I did this. I used this technique on the flower only. Loll xx

  6. Loll,
    Adorable card, love the image, love the touch of the paper piecing, and with the flower soft, great dimension!! Wonderfully done!

  7. Hi Loll. Love your little Daisy, she's beautiful. Not quite sure about what the Paper Tole Technique is, will have to look that one up. Great idea adding some Flower Soft to the blossom. Have a great day! xxx

  9. Hi Loll, such a sweet card! I love the cute image and the purple flower looks great -I think I haven't come across this "flowersoft" stuff anywhere before (though I do remember you've used it in some other card too!), it looks stunning! Hugs, Nonni

  16. Adorable Loll! She's so cute and adorably colored! So fun to see you using Copics!

  17. Absolutely darling card and your coloring is awesome (as always). Love how you used the flowersoft. I tried it once in a class and thought it was too messy for me - lol. But... I might have to try it again after seeing this. Hugs to you dear lady! D

  18. Another stunner Loll. Really is lovely. Just seen the flower soft in the centre of the flower. Fab addition. I have some of that some where and forgot all about it until I saw your card.
    Have a great week.
    Hugs, Florence xx
