Many Thanks

Hi everyone.  It's great to be back on-line after moving houses and being "unplugged" for a few weeks. :)

Today I'm sharing a card I made for Emily.  She has been walking Jessie for a few years and we will miss her.  I used one of the images from Daisy Darlings from Penny Black, stamped in black and watercoloured with Distress Inks (Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs, and Mowed Lawn).  The sentiment is from the Happy Snippets (Penny Black) stamp set.

Close-up ...

I kept this card CAS (clean and simple) as the image is so darn adorable ... and I wanted it to be the focus. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Dainty Darlings (Penny Black); Happy Snippets (Penny Black)
Paper:   White card stock (Neenah 110 lb.); Mixed Media (Strathmore 140 lb.)
Ink:  Black Pigment ink (Obsidian - Altenew); Distress Inks:  Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, Brushed Corduroy, Gathered Twigs, Mowed Lawn (Tim Holtz) 
Accessories:   Watercolour brushes

This little Daisy Darling is a significant size and you colored her up so beautifully. I agree that she's best left on her own with no competition for her sweetness. Emily will appreciate her. I'm glad you're plugged in again and able to create. I would be lost without my craft room.
