Posted on 5th September 2018 by Emily
- Jumbo Daisy - Stampendous cling repositionable cling rubber stamp.
- Small Message stamp.
- Large Edge Punch.
- Archival Library Green or similar permanent green ink pads.
- A4 White Hammered 255gsm card
- A4 Daffodil 290gsm card
- A4 Sorbet Yellow 270gsm Cumbria Colour card
- A4 Mid Green 270gsm Cumbria Colour card
- Banana Yellow 220 x 220mm envelope or Clotted Cream 220 x 220mm envelope
- 3D double sided tape
- Double sided tape
- Watercolour paints or crayons
1) Use 2 pieces of A4 Mid Green card to create the base card.
Cut one piece to make a 210mm square and the other full A4 piece score at 210mm.
Use the flap to stick the 2 pieces together. The flap is on the outside at the back.
2) Cut a piece of white hammered card to 210mm x 150mm.
On the smoother side of the card stamp the daisy using an Archival green ink pad.
3) Colour the Daisy and foliage using either watercolour paints or crayons if you prefer.
I use the paints and give the daisy and bud a light wash of pale yellow first.
The colour is then built up gradually creating areas of shadow and depth.
Same technique with the foliage.
5) Punch 210mm edge of Sorbet card with a punch that will go through this weight of card.
I have used a Martha Stewart large edge punch.
6) Mount layers of card together and then onto the front of the card using double-sided tape.
7) Die cut mid green card with a die from Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacey Circles and a plain circle in daffodil yellow card for stamping.
Edges of Daffodil card circle is distressed with Peeled Paint Distress Ink pad.
Die cut shaped circles are raised slightly on the front of the card using 3D tape.
8) I have finished off the centre of the daisy by adding touches of gold glitter glue.
