Hello Daisy

I have been playing with some of the new stencils and stamps from Classy Cards 'n Such, and I was in the mood to mix the two together. This sweet daisy card turned out better than I imagined!

I started by stamping the daisy and the sentiment from the Hello Daisy set (JustRite) onto white cardstock. I then stamped it again onto some post-it notes and cut them out to make a mask (Masking Technique from Technique Junkies). I placed the cut-out post-it notes over the stamped daisy to cover it while I sponged over the white cardstock with the Texture Mini Dots stencil and the Peacock Feathers ink. I carefully removed the stencil and then removed the post-it notes. The daisy and the leaf were colored with Copic markers, and then I adhered this piece to a black card base.

I wanted a bit of shine on my daisy, so I covered the center of the daisy using the shimmery clear glitter Wink of Stella pen. You can see the shimmer below:

I needed something to go across the top of the card, so I pulled out my Chalk White seam binding. I decided to color it yellow to match the center of the daisy. I smooshed my Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink inkpad onto my nonstick craft mat, added a teeeensy bit of orange from my Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink Marker, and mixed them together before dragging my Chalk White seam binding through the puddle of ink. I crushed up the ribbon in my hands and then set it aside to dry. Once it was dry, I tied it across the top of the card.
