Daisy Thank you for AYSI#179

Hello Everyone!

Thank you for peeking in for Today’s Card!

Today’s Card is for the

As You See It #179 Challenge!

 

Here is the Challenge!

 

AYSI 179

I tried 3 times to mimic those pansies and totally failed!

I ended up stamping the daisies instead.

I water-colored the background (I used alcohol) to mimic the photo!

Here is my Card!

I filled the Aqua Painter with Rubbing alcohol and then squeezed the Ink Pads

to get the ink on the inside of the lid. Squeezed some alcohol onto the lid, mixed

with the ink, picked up the ink and brushed rapidly, back and forth, to cover the

front panel. I used that technique for both the sky AND the grass!

 

Here is the inside of my Card!

I brought the 3 colors together for the inside too!

CARDSTOCK:

Basic Black-card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″ score @ 4.25″ fold in half on the score

Whisper White-front and inside panels, 4″ x 5.25″ and a scrap piece to stamp the daisies

Garden Green-a small piece to cut out the stems for the daisies

STAMP SET:

Daisy Delight-daisies on front and inside, greeting, inside sentiment

INKS:

Flirty Flamingo-daisies on front and inside

Crushed Curry-daisy centers

Memento Tuxedo Black-greeting, inside sentiment

TOOLS:

Big Shot-die cutting machine

Bouquet Bunch Framelits-stems on card front

Aqua Painter-filled with rubbing alcohol for the water-colored effect

If you use alcohol…wipe out the lid when finished. You want to preserve your ink pad!

 

Here is my Card again!

  2. Very cute card. Those pansies would be seriously hard to duplicate, so you took the better route, I think! Thanks for joining us at As You See It!
