SPRING DAISY

I colored this flower for day 3 of Altenew Beautiful Details class - it was left to last 'cause I thought it would be the most difficult to color (it was for me).  Actually I'm kind of getting the hang of this technique but it does take a lot more time.



The flower was first stamped with morning frost ink and then colored with soft grey Zigs. The details were added with various shades of grey oil colored pencils and the center stamped with dark chocolate ink.  Then I added Spectrum Noir glitter pen all over.  The background circle was cut from some vellum and the little sentiment was embossed in liquid platinum.  Put it all together on a silver metallic card base with a few sequins for more glitz.

The design of the card is from the Freshly Made Skteches challenge #242.  I am also entering this in CAS Mix-Up challenge for June as I used die cuts, stamping, and embossing.  The theme at CASology this week is "congratulations" so am entering it there also.
 

Just a reminder also that the challenge at A Blog Named Hero this month is vellum - you still have time to enter here.

I'm pleased that you stopped by today and thanks for taking time to comment.
