Bashful Brushos for Krafty Chicks

Hello friends.  I'm excited that I've been asked to be Guest Designer at
the Krafty Chicks Challenge.

Tangii has chosen this Photo Inspiration for the 1st challenge of the month.

Isn't this a gorgeous photo?

I found a strip of Brusho in my background box that resembled the background
of the photo (at least to me).

I used the left over from the die cut to ghost another flower in the background.
I rubbed through the handmade stencil with a baby wipe to get the ghosting.

I used my Zigs and a waterbrush to color the stems, leaves and centers of
the daisy die cut and shaped the petals.

Little pieces of dimensionals  hold some of the petals off the paper
to keep the dimension.

A narrow border of dark green adds some contrast and I also 
added some scoring.

I hope to see you over at the Krafty Chicks.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Congratulations on your GD spot at Krafty Chicks, Bonnie!
This is so pretty and a great interpretation of the inspiration photo. I love all the colors you can see in the brusho background, and the ghosted daisy! It's so effective and serves like a shadow of the die-cut daisies. The dark green borders and the subtle horizontal scoring are a wonderful finishing touch.
