Creative Exression Thursday

Hi all

Daisy Daisy give me your answer do..... la la la la all for the love of you..... Im singing, join in anytime you like... No ? anyone lol oh well
Gosh tht shows my age doesn't it.
So yesterdays card was pretty male and dark so I thought today I'd be opposite and go very bright and pretty girly.
So here it is.

Todays card.

I used the daisy quilt striplet stamp to create a back ground for our main focus. The stamps were part of John lockwoods collection of daisy themed stamps called Daisy chain elements.
Here is how to....

 So here is the striplet stamp I used to created the image using grey ink and every other or so daisy I coloured in with yellow and mustard seed distress marker and a litte of one of the green ones too. I then  mounted it onto a mustard colour card followed by a lemon piece of card.
I also used a white pen to add fauz stitches on the mustard layer to match with the stitching on the striplet stamp too.
 I then stamped out the heart in the set twice and cut them out on a small retangle piece of Milk card and also coloured these the same however I added a few backing colours like the weathered wood colour around the edge to make the daisies pop off the page.

I also started adding some green to the centre taking care to go around the petals to keep that spikey effect.

 I then coloured the centre with Bundled sage distress pen also and flicked out some white gel pens on the inside barely seen with the bolder layer of  pen strokes but enough to give it light inside , I then stamped a little sentiment from the set across the centre of each heart in black.
I mounted it on the same combo of mustard and lemon card.

 I created a double mat in milk for the backing piece to sit on and before I stuck it to the card I wrapped a small piece of Seam binding in Meadow green around the backing piece then stuck it down to the milk double layer.

                                                                              Et Voila....

 Add your central piece on to some foam and then on the card.Add a small bow with a pearl in the bottom centre and some pearls in each corner and this piece is all done.

 Here is a photo of the layers and below is the colours I used from my distress markers.

Bundled sage, Peeled paint,Mustard seed Squeezed lemonade, and weathered wood

This what the colouring today looks like.

I added the little seam blinding bag, bow and peals and it was all done.

Well I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial my daisy folks.
Take care of each other
Best wishes
