Simple Beauty

A huge Thank You to all who visited for the Artistic Outpost Blog Hop! Thank you to everyone who left comments........I love reading them! It's so great to get feedback.

I have another AO design to share......a totally different style.

I used stamps from Old Grist Mill to create this simple card.

I stamped the daisy with Memento black ink on a plain white card with a rounded corner. I added the verse with the same ink. On another piece of white paper, I stamped the daisy 3 times. I cut out 2 daisies and one center. I cut some of the petals off one of the daisies.

I colored the daisies with Copic Markers: Y21, Y32, W1. I used E37 and touch of W1 for the center. I shaped the petals by rolling them over my scissors handle, between my thumb and the handle. I turned the daisy center over on a foam mat and rubbed a paper stump over it to give a cupped shape.

I assembled the daisy by gluing the complete daisy over the daisy on the card front, then adding the missing petals daisy and finally the center is fastened with a foam dot. You can see the dimension in the close up photo.

This was a quick & fun card to create.

Until next time.......I'll be working on! Creating, that is!

Thanks for stopping!

This might be a totally different style for you, but you made it look easy. Gorgeous. And so very 'simple'. Even though I know it's not an easy style.
