Spring Daisies

Hello there!! Brenda, here with you today sharing some spring daisies to brighten your Friday!!!

Thinking-of-You-CP-1

I began by placing the Coming Up Daisies stamp (one of my faves!!!) into my MISTI stamping tool. I colored directly onto the stamp with several colors of Tombow markers, then spritzed with a mini mister, before stamping it onto Bristol cardstock. Using the MISTI, I was able to go back in to add more marker in areas that needed more color with perfect alignment every time. A damp paintbrush was used to “pull” some of the color into the daisies & leaves, for a “messy” watercolor look. I colored the markers onto my craft mat, diluted with some water, then splattered onto my stamped images. I set the panel aside to dry and started to work on the background. The largest of the Double Stitched Rectangle Dies (Large) was used to cut a panel from Bristol paper, as I wanted my white papers to match. Next, I used the Geometric Lattice Cover Plate Die to cut the intricate design from the background panel and adhered it to a panel of light gray cardstock. This die creates so much interest in the background…I know I will be using it a ton!!! Once my watercolored panel was completely dry, I used the Coming Up Daisies Coordinating Die to cut the daisies, before adhering it to the background panel with dimensional adhesive. The sentiment is also from Coming Up Daisies; it was white heat embossed onto a strip of black cardstock and popped up with foam adhesive. Some Clear Wink of Stella and a sprinkling of Glass Slippers Round Confetti Mix (another of my faves!!!) added a little bling!!!

My second card today used the same technique…

This time I used the stunning Daisy Duet and Daisy Duet Coordinating Dies. Everything else was the same.

I really enjoyed this technique and can’t wait to try it with other outline stamps. It is definitely a different look for me, as I usually color in outline images.
