Cameo Daisies



I received my latest order from CHF today, and I just had to ink up my new stamps and play tonight. This is a quick and easy card. The longest part was the watercoloring.

All the stamps on here are from Cornish Heritage Farms - just click to go to their website. These include the Dotted Diamond backgrounder, Wishing you a Beautiful Day, and Daisy Jar. I wanted a nice bright spring-y color, so I picked Cameo Coral for the card base and the color of the flowers. Then to tone down the brightness, I added the Olive cardstock with some olive colored Dew Drops on the sides.

I watercolored the image using my ink pads (put a drop of reinker in the lids of each color) and my aquapainter. The shading at the bottom wasn't gray enough for me, so I went back over it with my Cool Gray Copic Marker just along the edge of the jar.

Here's wishing you a beautiful day!
