Daisy Corner

Hello everyone, hope you have a nice weekend planned. I have a very simple card to show you today, but it took a while to make due to drying time. I used the Daisy Large Flower stencil, Zinober Gold, Passion Flower & Red Starlights & Mixed Media Ink Sprays.




To make the splattery background I unscrewed the nozzle of each ink spray & flicked it over a square of white card, trying to get different sizes of splats.

I used four colours; Sunshine, Red, Light Blue & Light Purple. I didn't want any colour mixing, so I applied the colours one at a time, letting them air dry thoroughly in between, which is why it took so long to finish the card. I could have used my heat tool, but that tends to force colour into the card & I wanted the illusion that it was sitting on top.

When the final colour was dry, I began applying Starlights, starting with a layer of Passion Flower as a base.



Layers of Zinober Gold, Red & more Passion Flower were added to the petals & Topaz to the centre.



I added a greeting from my stash & layered the card on to black card & a 7x7 white card blank.
