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!

 

100_5013

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!

 

100_5015

I brought the 3 colors together for the inside too!

 

Stock and Measures:

CARDSTOCK:
