Rustic Daisy

Hey ya'll!! Ive been loving this daisy flower from Melanie Muenchinger's Pressed Flowers set lately! I guess wishing for spring to officially arrive! :D I don't like hot summer weather, the temps in the Spring are fine though. Anyways....

Here is a card I made to enter into the CAS DT search over on SplitCoast Stampers (SCS). We were to do a card with the theme 'The Great Outdoors' and be an encouragement card...here is what I did:



When I think of the great outdoors, I think rustic things and that is the look I was going for with this. The daisy is stamped using white acrylic. I need to that more often, I like how it looks!

I made this card for the CAS challenge, the weekly one, over on SCS. It was a sketch challenge we were to use...I believe the challenge was last weeks. Here is my card:



I used distress inks to stamp the daisy on this, plus did a 'two step' stamping...stamped the solid daisy first then used the open line art daisy to stamp over....and you don't have to be perfect when doing this, to me, it gives it a more 'artistic' look if you arent perfect!! :D

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are having a wonderfully creative week...it's a beautiful sunny 80 degrees weather here today in my neck of the woods so I'm going outside to read! :D
