Daisies are my favorite flower. They're cheerful and perky, and fresh. They brighten my garden, and in a little vase in the house they bring cheer to my decor.
I decided to try the no-line watercolor technique with this lovely bunch of daisies by Stampendous! I do not know the name/number of the stamp, as I stamped it at my friend's house the other day, and brought it home to color it. I neglected to get the info...so sorry. The hello is from Stampendous' clear set SSC039, and is an oldie but goodie set.
I stamped my daisies with antique linen in the TH distress inks, and proceeded to watercolor using various shades of distress inks. As daisies are white, it was a challenge to get them to look dimensional. I think it came out ok, but I need to work on this making white petals look like petals thing. I think I went a little too dark with the background, so thought I'd brighten it up with the blue and white gingham ribbon. Also, I used my Signo white gel pen to make some highlight dots on the background, and that perked it up a tad.
I am adding my card to the The Daily Marker - Day 22 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Eight days to go! Wow...it's going by quickly!
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are enjoying you summer.
