Birthday Daisies

Gorgeous Flowers Blooming just for you!  Happy New Year! We hope you have had a wonderful time over the holidays and wish you an amazing 2015!

You should have arrived here from the incredible ZOE!
But if you get lost you can start at the beginning HERE.
 
Today we are excited to be sharing a new release of beautifully illustrated flower stamps from Make it Crafty. They are intricate and delicate with lots of detail and are the perfect choice for many occasions. These gorgeous new flowers are available in both digital and rubber and the rubber stamps also come with a hand written sentiment, which of course you could use between all the different flowers.

For my project I've used Birthday Daisies and created a page in my trading card journal.  I first started with distress inks and tried to go for a watercolor look.  However since my watercolor skills are about as good as my karate skills it went about as well as I expected.  So I dragged out my Prismacolor pencils to save the image.



Your next stop on the hop is the talented KAY!  
But if you get lost you can find the complete hop at Make it Crafty HERE.

Good luck!

  23. This is very pretty. A great project. I was going to try a few of the techniques that the other women suggested. Watercoloring seems to be a not so friendly medium but I love the look of it. I am going to try the Distress Inks, too. Forget the karate.
