Well what could be better for first thing on a Monday morning than to be woken up with something bright and sunny?!? I thought I would continue the Monday Stamping theme with another departure for me and show a colour I rarely use.
I love the monochrome look and who says it has to be black and white why not yellow and white. I started by stamping the daisy image from the Singles range of stamps by Sue Wilson in black archival ink onto super smooth card stock and simply coloured the image using watercolour pencils. This has allowed me to give a little bit of shade to the petals and hopefully some movement as well.
The only way I could take this then was to pull out the yellow by making a mat around the cut image and the remainder of the card simply followed. I made a hand cut card blank in White card and added a strip of the Austrian Collection border die down the right hand side. I matched this with a strip of fine ribbon next to the strip which I tied in a simple knot and added the foam mounted image over this.
To finish I added a few of the Delicate Daisies randomly (I say randomly but I played for an age to get that random yet balanced look) around the design and added some green gems from my stash as the flower centres.
A departure for me style and colour wise but all in all I actually like it!
