Yellow Daisy Dreams...

Happy Tuesday,

I promised yesterday some examples of my colouring this is my first attempts using Alcohol markers so please be kind lol!  This is another sample made for my One Day special on Hochanda which continues today at 9am, 12pm 4pm and last chance at 7pm ( if there's any stock left as its flying at the moment.

I stamped the Daisy Dreams rubber stamp twice, and coloured them in using a range of alcohol markers in shades of yellows and greens to make the flowers, hopefully, look shaded and 3D. I cut one of the stamped images out using the outline die form the New York union square die.  I then cut the four larger daisies out and foam mounted these on the first stamped image offset to make it look like a full ring of the larger flowers.

I then cut 2 of the detail die from the union square die and cut these into pieces to overlap them as a border around the main image along with a layer of primrose foundation card.

I added layers of primrose and bright white card along with a layer of bright white card embossed with the new Daisy Dots A4 embossing folder.


I finished with a bow of thin ribbon in lemon and white and stamped the sentiment, from my Daisy Trial elements range in the centre.

All the products featured are available on today's shows It would be great if you get the chance to tune in.

Enjoy...

  6. Morning John, such a wonderful spring card today, love all the colouring, I thought you said you were not much good at it, well I can tell you have been telling porky pies because it is stunning, we need cards like this in such vibrant colours especially on these cold and frosty days.

    I missed the show last night but it is on in a minute so I am going to watch it then.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  7. Morning John,
    nothing wrong with your colouring! Alchohol markers can be tricky but I think you pulled it off on this one. Nice and sunny on these dull days.
    Really nice!

  37. Hi John. A very pretty card for today. Love the spring colours. Like you, I tend to steer clear of yellows, but this card is a definite hit. Love the daisies as they are such happy flowers. Off to watch you on TV now.

  38. Hi John. An absolutely beautiful card today, the colouring of your daisy flowers look perfect as far as I can see (I'm no professional colourist) but they have done what you set out to achieve in my opinion for what it's worth ! My little craft shop has sold out of your paper block so I'd say all in all its rather popular wouldn't you ? Your card is very spring like, just what is needed now to help shake off the winter blues.
    Carry on with the 'happy cards' and congratulations on your sales 😊 xx

  53. Hi John
    Lovely card in lovely colours. Nothing wrong with your colouring as I wouldn't have known it was your first attempt. I still haven't managed to watch any of your shows as we've been away.

  54. Another gorgeous daisy card, I love them.
    I also like the way you have cut the union square die to make a frame so pretty and I will definitely try to remember that one.
    As for your colouring in it looks fab to many and would never have known it was your first attempt with alcohol markers.
