Hey all, hope you're having a GREAT 4th of July! Quiet here and I'm OK with that! Working on both sides of this holiday makes it hard to do much! I made it to the stamp room though and hope to make it back before the day is over to work on Birthday cards.
Today's creations - Daisies Two Ways! See if you can see the difference...
Inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest, and a color challenge I'll mention shortly. I went to the stamp room to make Birthday cards and came out with these instead :) I have an idea in my head though, and if it works you'll be seeing this layout again soon!! I always feel like these Daisies are missing something when I just stamp them, and today I saw mention of coloring them (after stamping). Great idea! I may have done this before but it's been so long since I used the set I don't remember! Details below the Challenge info.
After Pinterest, before I went upstairs, I browsed through my saved list of stamping challenges and found a Color Challenge at Just Add Ink that spoke to me!
Granny Apple Green, Soft Sea Foam and Flirty Flamingo. Perfect to combine with my Daisy layout!
All the daisies were stamped in Flirty Flamingo on Whisper White and punched out. The top card, the daisies were colored with a Blender Pen and Flirty Flamingo ink (from the ink pad). I didn't try to be very careful with the color, I like the white spaces and dark and lighter color. The second card, I used a Sponge Dauber to dab on Flirty Flamingo. Tried to keep a "light hand" but did shade a little darker around the center. I did 3 Daisies together for each Daisy. The center was stamped with Flirty Flamingo, punched with the 1/2" circle. I added some Stella after attaching to the center of the flower. The leaves are from the Painted Harvest set, stamped the "outline" image in Granny Apple, and the background/solid in Soft Sea Foam. Punched with the Leaf punch.
Again I'm apologizing for using retired items, but the more I use the less I have to store or prep for garage sale :) The wood grain background DSP is from last year's catty, as is the "white" ribbon that I colored Flirty Flamingo with my Dark Stampin' Blend.
Card base is Flirty Flamingo, accent layer of Soft Sea Foam. Whisper White with the DSP attached. Thank you stamped at the bottom in Granny Apple Green. The ribbon is a "cheater" meaning I attached the ribbon around the card at each side, then knotted a smaller piece around it. The flower layers were all attached together with Snail, then to the card with a Stampin' Dimensional in the center. The leaves have Mini Dimensionals under them.
