Die's have been the focus this week for most of my posts and I thought my Copics were calling me... so I colored up these sweet little daisies tonight! Actually, the image is called Coneflowers... but I think they morphed in to daisies nicely for my card! After coloring them I really wanted the image to remain the focus of the card, so I kept the rest of the card pretty simple and mainly white. I LOVE white on white but it's hard for me to make a card like this. I have a real compulsion to color it all and cover it all up!
The image is much larger than this, but I knew I was going to frame just a portion of it, so I went ahead and cut out a square to work with. You can see the Copics I used. I always do my background first.
As a final touch.... a touch I can't seem to stop from using on everything.... a little sparkle from my Clear Wink of Stella Brush Pen. Oh, how love this pen!!! I'm normally not a glitter girl, but this subtle quick drying sparkle is totally cool!
I doubled up my frame.. cutting it a second time to get an extra layer. The bottom frame is cut in each corner, giving me four pieces and I just extended them out a tiny bit to add an additional layer.... foam tape in between for dimension too! You can see the breaks in the second layer in each corner on the first picture showing the full card.
I always like to add a sentiment on the inside... but I was loving the clean crisp feel of the white look. I stamped the image in the corner on a liner using Scattered Straw Distress ink and left it open for an any occasion card.
