Sunny Days & Laughter

One of my favorite season’s is Spring.  The anticipation of sunnier days and flowers always makes me happy.  Today I’m featuring the new Color Layering Daisies from the 2016 Catalog.

This card uses a total of 3 different size Daisy blooms and 6 different inks:

Shadow Ink Soft Apricot ● Shadow Ink Soft Cantaloupe ● Shadow Ink Fresh Peach

Shadow Ink Soft Vanilla ● Shadow Ink Lemon Yellow ● Shadow Ink Butter Bar

Do you see the subtle blue around some of the blooms?  I did a bit of watercoloring and love the effect of the blue combining with the yellow petals.

I originally was going to use Shadow Ink Wet Cement for the sentiment and to coordinate with the base panel but decided to stamp right on top of the blooms using the new Intense Black Ink, which is also alcohol-marker friendly too!

I am going to do variations of this design, switching out the colors and sentiments and bundle them up as a gift for my Mom’s upcoming birthday!

Don’t forget about the current challenge:

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your day is filled with sunshine & laughter.
