Daisy Silhouette

*This post is part of the February promotion fortnight. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.*

Good morning, here's my first card for February............

As with many of my January samples, I used Versacolor inks, in this case Cyan, Peony & Split Pea. I swiped them onto my craft sheet & spritzed them with water until I saw the beads of ink........

I laid a die cut circle of Super Smooth white card on top of the inks, pressed gently & lifted the card off. I dried the card with my heat tool & pressed it into the inks again.
When I was happy with how it looked I made sure the card was thoroughly dry, then added splatters of Apple Lace Silkies & water..............

I adhered the circle to a square of Super Smooth with Cosmic Shimmer glue, using a brayer on the reverse to ensure a flat surface.
I applied a few layers of Black Soot distress ink through the Daisy Silhouette mask from That Special Touch..............

I used black card & green Core'dinations for matting & layering & adhered everything to a 7x7 card blank. The sentiment is from the Hobby Art stamp set, 'Anna's Collection - Just For You'.

I had some ink left over so I mopped it up with a scrap of water colour card, added splatters of Denim Lace Silkies & made an ATC...........

  1. Two super cards Kirsten, I love them both. x Gill x

  2. Hi Kirsten
    The one with circular pattern is a lovely card. Do you think you could stamp on it as opposed to using a stencil or would the layers get in the way?

    1. Hi Yvonne, thank you. I think it could work if you used a thinner card stock/paper. It also depends on the stamp; if it's highly detailed you might not get a perfect impression - you could fill in the gaps with a fine line pen. Why not have a play with a few scraps of card & paper & see what happens?

  3. Hi, love the gorgeous background and the mask, thought it was a stamp at first, great inspiration again. Thanks. X

  4. Pretty background that makes a lovely card. Am going to have a background making session next week and am so looking forward to playing! Thank you, Jan

  5. Both lovely cards but my favourite is the first one, love the circle design!

  6. The circle background is so effective

  7. Gorgeous card and ATC. The background is so pretty and I love how you've just used a circle on the card of the background. xx

  8. The background is beautiful! I love it and must try that technique soon, hopefully for an entry into Lisa's challenge. Previously I've always bought large ink pads but now I've seen this I need to get some little ones too. Thank you for the chance to win lush goodies and for sharing this beauty with us Karen x
