Hello Stampin' Friends. Today's card is for the Color Challenge which has been combined with Mother Marks Teapot Tuesday Challenge. The colors this week are Old Olive, Barely Banana & Ballet Blue with Red embellishment for dessert. The Teapot Challenge is to put daisies on the card.
I thought about the wildflowers near my Dad's house that look like blue daisies and thought I would try to make one. Needless to say, only God can make a flower. This pales in comparison to the real thing.I used the Flower Daisies #2 Bigz Die and the BIG GUY to punch 2 of the small flowers from the Ballet Blue card stock. The leaves are cut with the SU Little Leaves Sizzlit. I stamped the sentiment crooked as usual... so I stamped it again and punched it with the word window punch and covered up my boo boo.
The white piece is cut from the SU Top Note Bigz Die and I used the color spritzer with a Rose Red marker to speckle the background a bit.
The ladybug (my dessert), was punched with a regular paper punch. You know the kind you pick up anywhere. I punched one circle in red & one in black. I put the dots on the red with my Basic Black marker and used a glue dot to stick the two together. You can see it better on the close up below.I used the Frost White Shimmer paint that is still available as a catalog write in to add a little shimmer to the daisy.
This will go out to a fellow stamper that has to have surgery that will keep her from stamping for a bit. Can you imagine how hard that will be? I hope she will have a speedy recovery.
Hope everything comes up daisies for you today, tomorrow too.
