Lois Vicky Anne Pat G. you are here. Karen H. Patty P. Mary Marilynn Pam Debbie Nancy Bonnie Kathy Brenda Toni Tangii Anna S Sue Kelli Janine Mark's Finest Papers I love this stamp set. I could color these daisies for hours. I used the leaf/ladybug stamp to make my Faux DP background. Stippled yellow in between each one. Then stamped the Happy Birthday. I layered the single daisy image and attached to the front. All colored with Copics.
My second card uses the triple daisy image. I have colored it with chalks. The background I made a long time ago. Found it in my stash. It is a resist technique. Matched my colors perfectly.
Be sure to check out the Blog Hop and the rest of the Design Teams projects for lots of good ideas. .

Both cards are just wonderful! I enjoy the rich, vibrant colors.

Isn't it fun when something from our stash works on a card? I love the colors on that resist background. Good thing we are hoarders. You never know when that scrap that didn't work on another card will be the perfect one for another.
