Smiling Daisies

Ali’s beautiful card was created with our DAISY GRUNGE stamp set and BUBBLES & FIZZ stencil.

[Tutorial] To create the background of this slimline card Ali took a piece of white card stock and placed blended ‘Mustard Seed’ Distress Ink through the Bubbles & Fizz stencil, starting at the bottom then moving the stencil up the card so that the pattern would continue through the whole of the middle section. Once this was dry Ali used the word ‘smile’ from the Daisy Grunge stamp set and over stamped it randomly a few times on the stencilled middle section using ‘Watering Can’ Archival Ink. Next Ali repeated this using the tiny daisy stamp from the set. Using the same Watering Can ink, Ali stamped the large daisy onto a scrap of white card and coloured it using a Karisma Lemon Yellow pencil. Ali then water coloured over this using ‘Mustard Seed’ Distress Ink to give it more depth. Once dry Ali used ‘Hickory Smoke’ Distress Ink to watercolour the middle of the daisy, then fussy cut the image. This was then glued to the top half of the stencilled piece. This whole section was then mounted onto grey card to give it a small border, before attaching it to a white slim line card blank.
