Cork, Bling and a Daisy




Welcome


I printed and coloured this Daisy Doodle image with prisma pencils some time ago, and today had time to 'play' and mount it onto a card.



I started by cutting the image out and gently smoothing on some pale blue chalk onto the background before I removed the die.


I had fun with the wee critter images, 
and added some kindy glitz to glam them up.


The finished panel was mounted over some cork that I had cut with another die, and sponged the edges of with Espresso ink.




The sentiment was gold embossed and cut with a die – the orange tag is the same colour as the base card stock, and was threaded with gingham ribbon.
The same ribbon was also used to make a bow on the stem of the flower, which covers the leaves in the image.




Some rhinestones were placed around the card after assembling it.
The background patterned paper was from an Amy Tangerine pad.
