Thinking of you

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I popped the Daisy Patch Mask onto a piece of Watercolour Card. I sprinkled CS Candy Pink and Sun Yellow Pixie Powders over and then misted with water. I added another piece of Watercolour Card over the top to get a negative print and put both backgrounds aside to dry.

I dusted the negative background with an Anti-Static Bag and stamped the Woodware Tatty Daisies using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I cut out using Sue Wilson's Background Rectangles Set B and a Black Card mat using the next sized die in the same set.

At this point, if I was making the card again, I would edge with Black Soot Distress Crayon (Set 3). I edged after I painted the image and I smudged the leaves a little. I painted using CS Pixie Powders in Candy Pink, SunYellow and Peacock Green using a Water Brush.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Tatty Daisies onto another piece of my negative background, using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite A2 Card Front Basics and edged with Black Soot Distress Crayon. I cut a Black Card mat using the next sized die in the same set.

I popped my topper and sentiment onto an A5 Coconut White Card blank.
