Pink Daisies

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

Monday sure rolled around again quickly!

These daisies were in my NBUS box and I thought they would work well with the
Color Hues colors of Sage and Pink.

As it would happen, they worked out well to send to a friend who is experiencing
some health difficulties.  I hope it cheers her and reminds her of our hope in the Lord.

I inked the stamp with Distress inks and markers and used a damp waterbrush
to blend the ink.  I did a little touch up with watercolor pencils after stamping
and added some splatters.

To get the strip of color, I placed some Sweet Poppy stencil tape on the card and
lightly blended some ink between the tape.  I probably should have done this step first
but it seemed to work out fine.

Color Hues #89 - Sage and Pink
Darnell's I.D.E.A.S. - Anything Goes Week
NBUS #63 - Never Before Used Schtuff


I am so glad Blogger has straightened out.  It was so frustrating last week!

You call them daisies but I see echinacea, Bonnie. Or Coneflowers as they're known and I love them. The inked strip behind them is such a great design feature.

I didn't know Blogger was messing up last week, but I did think it was very quiet around town. I'm glad it stopped, whatever was happening. You showcased your cone flowers so beautifully in pink and sage, Bon, and I love the schplatters and cool stripe you added! Thank you for playing with my I.D.E.A.S. this week and linking again to NBUS! Hugs, Dolly
