Daisies in Distress

Good afternoon, peeps!  What a gorgeous day it is and if there are any daisies in your garden, the sun will certainly make their faces turn to the sky!

Here are some daisies that I put on a card for wor Sheena's shows on Create and Craft TV tomorrow at 9.00 a.m. and 3.00 p.m.

I created a classic, water splattered Distress Ink Background and then stamped the daisies and their leaves on top.  I then removed the colour from within the images using plain water on my brush and then blotting it off with kitchen paper (faux bleaching technique).  The next stage was to colour the images with Distress Markers and I also used some white wax pencil on the flowers.  The background paper is printed from Sheena's Paint Fusion CD, which has a wonderful collection of all sorts of goodies to use on your cards and in your mixed media work.  The die cuts are from a Cheery Lyn die (I think - I take them from the packets and store them on magnetic sheets so they can become somewhat anonymous!)

I hope you enjoy the shows tomorrow - they are defo going to be worth missing a little sunshine for!!

Thanks for looking today.
