Tropical Daisy

Hi there friends,

Hope all is well with you and you've had a good week so far.   Hopefully you've managed to fit in some special crafting time lol.   We had some snow here in our neck of the woods today but I'm pleased to say it didn't last long before it melted !! thank goodness.   This time last year we had about 11 inches of snow.   Well onto tonight's card, which I made for Sue and Harvey of  Imagination Craft's in May of 2012 and uses their beautiful Daisy Decoupage Stamp Set.   The background I made by using their Tropical Leaf Stencil and the main image was coloured with Mica Powders and Sparkle Medium for the flower centre.  I do hope you like it.   Well, let's get started.

Make a base card from black card and onto this matt some cerise coloured paper, leaving a tiny border of black showing.   Next using the trimmer, cut out a piece of white card approximately one quarter of an inch smaller than the cerise paper.   Lay the stencil on top and dab some Versamark through the design.   Lift off the stencil and brush the colours of your choice from the mica power set, over the card.   I used the light green, gold and old rose pink on my card.   Fix this to the cerise paper.

      
Take some black card and using the daisy stamp and the Versamark pad, stamp the daisy onto the black card.   Using the brush, dust the same three mica colours over the design.   Cut out the design.

Cut out and emboss with the Grand Calibur, the snowflake pendants ( not just for Christmas lol ! )  from cerise paper and glue to the top right and lower left corners of the stamped image.   Now glue the image to the centre of the white card.  

Next take more black card and cover with Versamark and brush with mica powders.   Stamp the daisy design using Versamark, onto the mica powdered black card, which will lift off the mica powder.   Do this three times.

    
Cut out the daisies and 3D them onto the original stamped image, using silicone glue.   Cut out a small circle and cover with Sparkle Medium.   When dry, glue to the centre of the daisy.   Surround the circle with gold seed beads, using Magi-Bond Glue.    Well there we are, another finished card.

Thank you so much for dropping in to visit my blog, I really do appreciate your interest and I love to read your lovely comments.    You can buy the products I have used for my card here.www.imaginationcrafts.co.uk.    Enjoy the rest of the week, it will soon be the weekend again !  these weeks are just flying by.   See you soon.

                                                                  Love and rainbows,

                                                                    Hugs  Jennifer xx
