Daisy Daisy

I have a card to share for Mo's Digital Pencil today and this little cutie is called Daisy Daisy

I just had to use her for my daughter's birthday card because she LOVES pigs :)

I had fun colouring this gorgeous girl with Copics and I drew little flowers all over her top with a white gel pen.  It's a bit hard to see in the photo but it gave it a lacy look.

Copics used :

Misty Morning Meadow Mushrooms

I had fun creating this card and things got a bit messy too :)

I had different inks, stencil, gel plate, brayer, pens, paints, embossing powder, stamps and stuff everywhere but I had a wonderful time and I ended up with this card :)

I created the background using Distress Oxide inks with a tree stencil and a gel plate.

I used Whimsical Hares, Berry Wreath, Meadow Mushroom and Mini Meadow Mushroom from Lavinia Stamps. 

I stamped the wreath with ink and also white embossed some of it. I then used glitter gel pens to colour the berries.

I used a wet paint brush with oxide ink to paint the underside of the Mushrooms and used glitter and white gel pens on those also.  

I also flicked on some white gesso and watery distress oxides.

 I have a card to share today using the Pussywillows stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil.

This stamp is so beautiful and I thought it would be great to use for a Thinking of You card.

I had a lot of fun creating this card :)

Firstly I created a mask to cover the girl on the stamp.
Then I created the background by brayering some distress oxide inks onto my gel press.  I used Ripe Persimmon, Squeezed Lemonade and Speckled Egg for the sky and pressed it onto the cardstock.

It looked pretty good except that it looked a bit more like three stripes of colour than a sky.  So I just used a sponge with the same distress oxides and blended a little between the blue and yellow and the yellow to persimmon.  

This was easier for me and gave a much better result as I find blending oxides smoothly onto copic card a bit difficult.

Then I blended Twisted Citron and Pistachio Distress Oxides for the grass.

I flicked on some gesso mixed with water and also "painted" some whispy clouds with it.

I removed the mask and coloured the girl with Copics and used a white Posca pen on the pussywillows.
