Hi my purple friend

After enjoying making and being happy with the results of my butterfly card I decided to have a go with daisy flowers. i followed the kind of plan and layout randomly stamping the flowers masking where necessary . I again coloured with promarkers but this time stuck to one colour purple inspired by the Michaelmas daisies that seem to have sprung up everywhere in my unruly and overgrown garden.

 I stamped and coloured an extra daisy and cut it out before adding to one of the flowers on the card to add dimension.



I added a sentiment by CC designs which is simply saying hi, I originally stamped it in black directly onto the base but didn't like it so I re-stamped onto a small piece of card using the darkest purple shade I used to colour the flowers.


I finished the card by matting the flowers onto metallic purple mirri-card and then onto a white base card.
