I noticed the first daisies peeping through the grass of my neighbour's lawn this morning - spring really is here at last! And to celebrate, here is a card that celebrates daisies!
I've had the main image stamp for many years, it is an unmounted stamp that came in a grab bag, and I must have used it hundreds of times. I'm not sure the flowers are meant to be anything specific, which is useful as they can become a stylised version of whatever you want them to be, depending on how they are coloured. This time I coloured them in by scribbling watercolour markers on acetate then picking up the ink with a waterbrush, apart from the tiny flowers which I coloured directly with the markers. I'd have really liked to do them in forget-me-not blue, for the full-on spring effect, but I didn't want to introduce another colour. However, pink forget-me-nots are often found in gardens so I've not used *too* much artistic license.
The paper, card, ribbon and pearls are all long-time lurkers in my stash!
