I used for inspiration the colors taken from this photo at the Die-Namites Challenge. I went with a more pinkish color then the photo but I still think it was close enough to qualify because it was a lighter shade of red.
Scandinavian Boutique Stacker to make the pink layer panel for the card using some shimmery pink card stock that I got from Crafter's Companion. My glitters were from Sparkle N Sprinkle. The sentiment is from the Gina K. Designs set called Stippled Nature and it is illustrated by Beth Silaika.
I started to remove the leaves and stems first using a Tim Holtz tool with a point on it to lift them up and when I got to the blooms on the daisy image I cut off the stem and left the blooms still adhered to the sticker paper. After I had burnished the green glitter into the stems and removed the excess glitter with a Swiffer cloth, I then proceeded to remove the blooms but left the centers of the daisies still intact. Once the pinkish glitter was added and the residue removed I then removed the centers and added some gold glitter. Again I removed the excess glitter. The last step was to remove all of the leftover sticker paper around the daisy bunch and apply the white glitter and again rubbing it in well before I removed the residue. This then made the design ready to apply to the rest of the card.
Oh, also here is a tip for you if you try this technique. I tried to use gold glitter around a floral image to do this technique and the darker color seemed to overshadow the main focal image of flowers. So I recommend sticking to a white glitter to do the background for the flowers. I will show you a small photo of the card I made trying the gold and you can see for yourself that it does not stand out as well. In fact I had a tough time to get the photo to even show the roses. I also used a Die-Namites die for this one called Rose Bush. It is another lovely die design.
This card I made today will be sent to a friend who is need of encouragement as she recently was widowed and she herself is very ill. I thought the pretty daisy bouquet was just the ticket to bring some joy to her life and maybe perk her up a bit.
Thanks for stopping in again and I look forward to seeing all your wonderful comments too!
