The Robin's Nest Blog Hop - Daisy Days

Hi Everyone!  Welcome to the Robin's Nest Design Team Blog Hop.

Firstly let me tell you that the team have some gorgeous inspiration for you with a magnitude of projects to share all incorporating daisies in some way.  For each blog you visit, follow and leave a comment you have a chance of winning a $15 Daisy Prize pack from The Robin's Nest which includes Tear Drops, Paper and Embellishments.

At home April is when we celebrate both my mums and my MIL's Birthdays so with this and the Daisy Theme of our Blog Hop in mind I grabbed some of my Dark Room Door Stamps and the Pretty Daisy Teal Stripe Paper from the Robin's Nest and made this card.




Starting with a piece of the Daisy Teal Stripe Paper from the Robin's Nest.  I layered a 12cm x 12cm square of this onto my 13 x 13 cm Card Base.


I then got out my Darkroom Door Stamps, some Blue Ink, Antique Linen Distress Stain and some Water Color Pencils to create a secondary backing Paper which would coordinate with my Daisy Stripe Paper using repetitive stamping of the small daisy flower.

 

And to this I added a eyelet border punched strip down one side.



I also used these same mediums to color the background for my sentiment.  And for an added touch I took a small piece of ribbon to form a loop to be layered under my main images layers.


My main image was a larger Daisy stamp with a script background this I layered onto a piece of the Daisy Stripe Teal Paper and then onto a piece of my blue cardstock.  I then layered all my pieces together.

The end result a Pretty Birthday Card for My Mum incorporating Daisies.

For more inspiration and for a chance to win your own Daisy Goodness be sure to visit the rest of the team as well as leaving me a little love here.

Until Next Time!.
