Daisy Love....

Leaving white space is always a challenge for me. I always feel compelled to cover it all! And, all though there is not a lot of white space on this card.... I still had to resist the urge to add! I used Flourishes' Hearts and Flowers set. I always love the sentiments they use in the sets, just as much as I do the images.  The daisies are actually shaped in a heart image, I just changed it up and used it a bit differently. I used a mask to cover the first stamped image, and then overlapped the hearts... to create a strip of the flowers. I only added color to the centers -- Y26 and Y28. I also colored my ribbon with Y26, as nothing in my stash matched. Which is hard to believe, lol! So sweet and simple and am patting myself on the back for leaving white space. I know it's not much.... baby steps. A few little silver pearls to finish it off.

  • Stamps: All stamps from Flourishes' Hearts and Flowers set
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx Black
  • Paper: Misc. card stock, Black, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
  • Other: Silver Pearls, Copics, Ribbon by SU, Eclipse Masking Tape
