Hello Daisies Card

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.
