Daisy on her Bike


Todays card is another of the new Elizabeth Bell stamps from Funky Kits, this one is Daisy on her bike. I have stamped her onto white card and this time Ive used my Faber-Castell colouring pencils, they arnt quite so waxy and harder to blend, but I like the end result so it couldnt have been to difficult.

The base card is again made with the A3 card and cut to the 8"x 8" size, and I have used all shades of mauve for this card, the first layer is a pearlescent card, and I have used the same one for the Scalloped Octagon Die cut that the stamped image is mounted on, and the tag, which again Ive used the Spellbinders dies with.

On this first layer I have put one of the Papermania papers, this one is a flower patterned paper. For the second mount Ive used a mirra card and a spotted paper from the same set of papers. The third layer is another piece of the pearlescent card on top of which I have put a Daisy paper that I found amoung my stash, I think it must have come from one of my magazines, but I thought it went well with the stamps.

Before layering up the third layer, I have used one of my Martha Stewart punches on a piece of pearlescent paper and then put it on top, but Ive also stuck a piece of beaded fringing which I thought went well. Then the whole thing was stuck on the base card.

I then mounted my cut out stamped image onto the scallop mount with foam, and again Ive used more foam to stick it over the beaded fringing. The greeting was one of my stamps from Stamp Tapestry clear greeting set, and then mounted on the cut out tag, Ive used my punch and made a hole for the satin ribbon which was then threaded through. To finish of the card Ive made up a silk flower and hung one of my heart beads with jump rings on the centre brad and stuck three flower jewels on the top right hand side.
