Here's a closer look at one of my samples from my shows on Hochanda last week! It does feature one of my favourite striplet stamps the Daisy Striplet.
I started by making the background, to do this I placed drops of Acrylic drawing ink onto white gloss card. I then, using a cotton wool pad, dabbed at the ink to make a textured background to look like a coloured granite. Where the drops of ink are then darker veins are apparent with lighter texture around them.
Next I heat embossed the daisy striplet onto the heat resistant acetate. I then made a frame using the outline die from the bevelled glass striplet set. I foam mounted this over the acetate and added more foam tape before mounting this onto a square layer of coconut white onto which I had stamps the sentiment, from my daffodil elements clear stamp set for Creative Expressions.
I finished the card using a few layers of sky blue and white to make the finished card.
