Daisy Doodles #79 Springtime

Welcome to a new challenge over at Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges


For my card I have excelled myself & combined elements from 3 different stamp sets !

I used one of the frames from the Floral Frames set. You get 4 different frames in JPG, PNG & TIFF formats for $3. I have also used one of the images from Flower Pack. This amazing value set has 14 images in 3 formats for only $5 and last but not least I have used the sentiment from Spring has Sprung, in itself a great image of daffodils and costs only $2 with the sentiment. I hope you can see that with these sets they are really versatile and you have so much scope for combining them to produce your own individual look.

Head over to the Daisy Doodles Store to check it out and all the other great digi’s that are available !
I have done well with this card using old and new items and creating a lovely ‘image’ by combining 3 different as stated above. I have created a decoupage by layering the bluebell flower head. The frame was coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers and then I created lots of layers as you can see in the image below.

I have used papers from the Spring Drop pad which are all in pastel shades. I used a sketch from Outlawz for the layout. The main background paper I changed the tone of green slightly by using a dry brush loaded with Distress Ink. The top strip of DP I added to an offcut of lilac card so it stood out from the backing paper better and added some faux stitches with a sakura glitter pen. As I had already added the sentiment to the image panel I used a vinyl due cut trim/sticker that I found in Poundland yesterday, adding some gems and pearls to the flower centres.

Following the sketch I added some glittery die cut bee stickers that are in the paper pad and a beautiful butterfly die. I have to confess I have had these dies for a good couple of years and never used them and they are so pretty…… naughty me L

I hope you will pop over to the blog to see the lovely creations on there from my team mates and we look forward to seeing your entries in for our Challenge.

I'll see you again next time with another lovely Daisy Doodles design.
