I love this little flower die and was inspired by this card by Sherry which you can see here from memory box .
For my first card I used some of my old ink pads that are on their last legs as the pads seem to be disintegrating or they are drying out.
I used a London fog ink for the base colour which I had to add a splash of water to to actually get colour from it. I rubbed it over a stitch edged rectangle. Instead of being grey it had a green tinge but I quite liked it. I then used the negative from the daisy die to use as a stencil and once the base colour had dried I used the same ink to the petals through the stencil.
I then used a peony dye, and slightly offset the flower head and inked again. I then I added the daisy outline over the inked flower heads. I added some small die cut butterflies again coloured with the same inks and attached randomly along with 3 small pale pink sequins.
I finished the card by adding a ribbon and a hand tied bow to the rectangle and a tag sentiment stamped with the grey ink using a lily of the valley stamp and adding all to a white base card.
I wanted to make full use of my die so I decided to make another card using the negative bits. This time I used a pale blue with the peony pink and when the ink was dry layered the petals .I used a white sakura gel pen to outline the petals and leaves then drew stems to complete the flowers.
I added white butterflies this time but no sequins.
I finished with white ribbon and again a tag from lily of the valley stamp fussy cut.
One die,two cards ,two different looks no waste.
