Hello Friend

Good Morning Dreamerz and Happy Wednesday!!

Today is my day to take over the SumMoreFun Designs Blog.

Here's my inspiration for you using:

Oops a Daisy

Today I want to share my take on a Eclipse Card with you.



Card Recipe:
I first stamped the larger of the 2 daisies in the set on some masking paper then fussy cut it so that I would have a mask that I could not only use for this card but for future projects also.  For the stamped layer I used a piece of Bristol Vellum cut to 5.25 x 4.00. I then took and made a very light pencil mark/line thru the center lengthwise as I wanted the flowers and die cut layer to be as centered as possible. I stamped the largest daisy using my Tim Holtz stamping platform as near to the center as possible using Gray Flannel ink from Memento.  Next I applied the mask of the stamped image and took the smaller of the 2 daisies and positioned it where I wanted and stamped it in the same color ink, to achieve the second daisy I flipped the card 180 degrees and stamped the next daisy. The sentiment was then added using Tangelo ink from Memento. After removing the mask I used a big hello die and die cut the center, I also die cut 4 more times using gray cardstock from my stash that would be used in assembly for the final project. Using Faber Castell watercolor pencils I colored in only the parts of the flowers that were on the die cut letters paying close attention to where the petals from one flower intersected another.  Once I was happy with the colors I assembled the card by gluing down the die cut base to gray cardstock, then I started adding in the layers of gray cardstock on top of each other to build up the word hello, the final step was gluing down the letters I had previously watercolored and adding a tiny yellow/gold rhinestone on the sentiment.
