Welcome to my fourth and final post for A Day For Daisies – I’m so sad because I’ve loved being part of their team and having fun with their images! I think this card is probably my favourite of the four I created and it is also the simplest.
I chose the Fairy Flowers image for todays card – I think they look a lot like poppies which is why I coloured the petals red. I used my colouring pencils, working in layers, from dark to light, to get a smooth gradient of colour. I had planned on leaving the area around the poppies white, however, adding the teal really accentuated the red.
I cut the image out using a couple of dies from the Tonic Studios Special Occasions set and left the frame white as contrast to very bright and bold colouring of the pencil. I raised up the frame on foam which I’d die cut so it matched exactly as it was incredibly intricate. For the background, I created a panel which I had blended Mustard Seed Distress Ink over and used the My Favourite Things Basic Stitch Lines die over it. I really love this die ass it can create gorgeous backgrounds so easily; it doesn’t cut the paper as such, however, it punches a line of different stitches into the paper and looks so beautiful!
I have loved my time with A Day For Daisies – if you’d like to view the cards below, they link back to their original posts.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I have created and will pop by again soon.
