More Blue Daisies

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I used my Betterpress and Wild Daisies press plate and colored with Copics.
It's a CASE of this card I did recently.

This card started out as a large slimline measuring 4" x 9".

I was in too big of a hurry to start coloring and the ink smeared on the bottom flower.
So I pressed that flower on a scrap of Betterpress paper, let it dry, colored, 
fussy cut and shaped it out to place on top of the offending flower.

Then I had the bright idea of splattering.

Oops!  Got some BIG splats at the top.

Cutting it into a Monarch size card left some splats.

So it became a mini slimline.

I was determined it wouldn't go in the UFO box and it needed to be in
the mail for my Sister-in-law's birthday.  I hope she likes it.
