Daisy Daisy...

Happy Monday,

Well we are back from Holiday and had a fabulous time, like most crafters I was itching to craft so spent yesterday evening crafting.  Today I am sharing a card aI made last night.  I was really inspired with the colours I saw in Mexico so went to of my comfort zone and made something in patterned paper and colour!




I started by cutting lots of different tags using the With Love tag die set from oddments of patterned paper and white card.  I added these onto a card blank covered in a different patterned paper.


I then tied a strip of May Arts silky ribbon across the front and added a bow in the same ribbon.


Next I added the Gerbera Leaves which I coloured in mint izink dye ink and a blending petal.  I then made up 3 daisies in white card adding glue and large glass beads in the centre.

Once dry I shaded the petals using a mix of yellow and orange Izink pigment ink, i shaded the flowers after making them so that I maintained the white centre and the edges of white popping through.

I arranged the card as shown with the flowers and foliage on top of the bow.


Enjoy...
