Hello All. I do love my flowers, and today's card is from a stamp set by Chocolate Baroque called Lily. I actually used the small Daisy head which is part of the set. I have sent it to someone in my family whose birthday is this week, so hope she likes it.
I am a bit boring with my card shapes but I really like square cards. Behind the main image I used a piece of white card which I embossed using a Cuttlebug EF called D'Vine Swirls. After embossing I inked this using Adirondack Sunshine Yellow, Memento London Fog and Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade.
For the focal point I used black card and a S/B Nestabilities Labels Thirty Two. I also used a S/B D-Lites Fantastic Flourish One and die cut one flourish (cut into three pieces) using a snippet of white card. Also using another snippet of white card I stamped the Daisy three times with Memento Tuxedo Black. I coloured with a little water and a fine brush using the three inks I used on the background and then cut them out. I wanted a sort of monochrome effect but with a hint of colour. After mounting I stamped the sentiment with the Memento Tuxedo Black.
Thank you for stopping by today, and as our weather here has improved somewhat, perhaps we will be able to enjoy some time outdoors this weekend. I hope wherever you are you have a good weekend.
I am entering the following challenge:
