Daffodil Beauty

Today I would like to share with you the card I made for the Art By Mi Ran challenge on the Facebook Page.


Materials used: 
Art By Mi Ran – Reserve Listing for the challenge
Imagine That! digis by Kris – Daffodil (coloured image)
X-Press It card
Copic pens
printer paper
Crafts Too stepper card die set
dark green card
gold ribbon roses from stash
gold greetings sticker

The daffodil borders I made using the Imagine That! digis by Kris coloured daffodil image, sizing and spaceing them to fit the dies.

I decided to go for the purple and yellow colour combination because I like it! However I have to admit yellow is not the easiest colour to blend especially as I do not have a wide range of yellow pens.

Thanks for droppping by. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
