Cardmaking

Blue Daisies

20170803_115916Hello!  Hope you are having a great week and that you have found some time for a crafty project or two.  It’s been perfect summer weather for crafting here (i.e. pouring rain interspersed with brief sunny spells!) and the garden is loving it too.  The lettuce is growing faster than we can eat it and we’ve had the first crop of courgettes and spring onions!  Anyway I’m not here to talk about my veggie garden……

I thought I would share a project I made today for a customer.  They asked for a sympathy card with a simple sentiment.  It’s never easy designing cards for a sad occasion but after playing around with a few ideas I came up with this clean and simple design using blue daisies.

First I stamped the image using archival ink.

I used distress inks and a water brush to colour the stamped image.

I used the faded jeans distress ink to create a wash effect background to stamp the sentiment onto.  Then snipped a sentiment banner

Then I just assembled the card using a black mat under the picture.

I hope they like the card and that they don’t need to use them anytime soon.  Thanks for the kind comments I got on my first blog post.
