Celebrate Spring-Sketch Daisy Card




I recently purchased the Sketch Daisy Memory Box Die and of course I had to use it right away.  This is what I came up with.

I started with some watercolor paper and using some pinks and yellow distress inks I created a color for the flower petals to be cut from. I used Pistachio for the leaves.

I then cut another piece of watercolor paper to about 4" X 5".  I then used placed some distress inks  on my Craft Mat and spritzed with water. I laid my watercolor paper on top of the colored inks and moved it around to create the background for my card.

I cut the outline of the daisy out of some white paper.  I adhered everything to the background with some Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive.  I purposely didn't line the flowers up perfectly to create a little more interest.  I cut the finished background with the largest Oval Die from Memory Box and adhered it to a white card stock base.

My card base is 4 1/4" X 5 1/2".  Before adhering the oval background to my card I stamped my Sentiment Celebrate Spring using some Wilted Violet distress ink.  To finish the card, I rounded the corners with my Corner Chomper.  Thanks for visiting.
