Garden Delights

Hello and Welcome

Glad to have some time to play with this new-to-me die from Paper Rose called Daisy Circle.
The daisies are blooming in my garden right now, such a pretty flower.  Simple white petals but they stand out so well in the garden.
I wanted to add a punch of colour too for fun, yet keep the daisies white, so I added lots of colours using the Stained Glass stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.  

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by cutting a square piece of white cardstock 4 x 4 inches.  I laid the Stained Glass stencil over my panel and inked it up with a variety of Distress Oxide colours randomly overlapping each other.  It added such a fun pop of colour to an otherwise plain background.
  • I die-cut the daisies from a piece of black cardstock, then again from a piece of white and set all the pieces aside.
  • I glued the black framed daisies over the stenciled background, then glued the white flower petals back into place.
  • Lastly, I glued that all onto a square card base that was 4 1/4 x 4 1/4.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

A dramatic card Karen - I love the vibrant colours and how they contrast with, and relieve, the stark black and white.
Stay safe

Wow, this is so different for you Karen and such great contrast with the bright background colours and the white on black daisies. A wonderful result! x

Hi Karen, nice to meet you and thank you for the recent visit to my blog and sweet comment you left for me.
I love the project! The color behind the black silhouette is beautiful and what a great idea to inlay the petals again.
