Daisy, Daisy

Hello crafters, my turn again, how great that spring is in the air, makes you want to make cards with flowers on all the time :o)  This card is for our promotion for this month and uses the new Stampendous Daisy Thanks stamp and Spectrum Aqua Pens
I started with a white 7 x 7 card and used the Thanks a Bunch stamp from the Stampendous Daisy Thanks set to stamp around the edge using Versafine Black Onyx.
Then matted some of the new Pastel Paper Bloc onto some black card from my stash and glued it into place.  I stamped the Daisy image onto some Watercolour Card, twice so to create dimension.  Before colouring in the image I inked around the card with Tumbled Glass Tim Holtz Distress Ink, just to take away the starkness of the white really.  This time I wanted to move away from the traditional white Daisy so went for a nice yellow from the Aqua pens, then coloured in the centres with a very watered down black.
I then coloured in the largest flower from the second image only and cut it out to decoupage onto the original, then coloured all the centres in with black Wink of Stella.
I expect you've gathered by now that I love the little bows created from the Sue Wilson Finished Touches Range of Bows, leaving them in the die I dabbed a little of the blue ink over them.  I then matted this onto another piece of black card before mounting the whole thing onto my card.
 Here's the finished card again :o)
Thanks for dropping by today, and see you again very soon
Love Jan xx    If you would like to look at the bottom of the page there is my take on our class makes from 6th March :o)
