Daisy Hello


Hi everyone.  Here's a quick card I made this afternoon for this week's Color Challenge (CC439) at SCS.  Kim gave us such a fabulous color combination (melon mambo, old olive, daffodil delight) ... with the "dessert" being to include flowers on your card.  Love this color combo ... such great summer colors.  Even though we're only half way through August, it already seems like summer is almost over, so I'm happy to make another summery card before fall is here.

I used the marker layering technique for this image ... stamped in Staz-on Black onto Whisper White card stock, then adding the ink with a blender pen ... so much fun!!  I added a cute, little sentiment and a bit of twine for an accent.

Here's a close-up:





Stamps:  Daisy Thanks (Stampendous); Sunny Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); Whisper White (SU!)
Ink:  Staz-on Black, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  blender pen, Honeydew Twine (The Twinery), adhesives and dimensionals



After coloring the image with my inks and blender pen, I fussy cut out the image and popped it up on my card front for added dimension.

This is a super color combo, and looked so fresh & cheery on your pretty flowers. I love the way you add the twine to your cards. Finishes off the image so well. TFS
