Dreary Day but Bright Flowers
My friend, Tanya came over yesterday and we talked and created non-stop. I feel very fortunate to have a friend close by that is as crazy as I am over crafts, especially all things stamping related. It was a day for showing each other the new craft supplies we had acquired and new creations. We enable each other! It's a win-win. LOL!
This daffodil stamp is a new release from Papertrey Ink. Daffodils are one of my favorite flowers, I think because they signal that spring is here. When I was growning up there was a bulb farm in my home town and I can remember huge fields full of daffodils. Gorgeous yellow blooms everywhere. I stamped the daffodil image with white pigment ink on white letter press card stock and embossed it using white detail embossing powder. Colored with a combination of copic markers and regular markers. Used a versamark pen to cover the image and embossed using clear embossing powder. Then I traced the edges using an embossing tool and turned over and embossed the petals and the leaves. Cut the white card stock using a spellbinders nestability. Tied white embroidery floss around the bottom and added a tag made by cutting with a deckled oval nestability, stamped the sentiment and colored the edges using a copic marker.
Placed this layer on coral card stock and added card front to A2 size card made with bo-bunny card stock.
Hope this card brightens your day in some small way :)
