More Yellow Daisies...

Happy Tuesday,

I thought I would show another of my attempts at colouring with alcohol markers and the colour yellow!  This is a simple card Honest.

I started by stamping the daisy square and colouring it with a collection of my alcohol markers ensuring i left the centres of the petals white to hopefully look like shading!
I stared the card by making an A6 card blank, yes its is an actual card! I stamped the daisy Daisy background text stamp, clipped the corners and shaded arrow d the stamping with lemon Meringue colour cloud blending ink.  I added thin layer of primrose foundation card and a strip of seam binding co,lured with the ink.

Next I stamped the Thank You sentiment form my daisy everyday sentiments set  on white card, cut it out and again shaded it with the colour cloud and a smoothie.  I added this to the       coloured image that I fussy but and added this to the

Finally a double bow of satin 3mm ribbon in white and yellow and a daisy that I stamped and coloured to match.

A simple card but hopefully the colouring works and harmonises the whole piece.

  26. That is a really pretty card. I have the lemon meringue ink - I thought you had use the primrose card again.

  27. Morning John, a pretty spring like card today, I am not great at colouring so probably would not try this.

  28. Morning John. Love the design of the card today, I particularly like the daisy stamp. In the close up picture of the sentiment, the colouring looks amazing, however in the picture of the card as a whole it is a bit pale for my taste (it may just be the lighting) - sorry


  29. Hello John, the colours on this one really took my eye, gorgeous, and the daisy design is beautiful, I love it, Kate x

  30. Morning John, This card is absolutely gorgeous !! Which alcohol markers do you use, if you are allowed to tell me ?? I have not tried using alcohol markers yet.
