Ink Duster Daisies

Hi everyone an early and damp start for me this morning,  up with the lark to take the dogs for a walk.  Today I have a card using a home made stencil cut from daisy dies and coloured using ink dusters, dye ink pads and distress markers.

I used Papermilldirect pale blue, marine blue, vellum, buff and black cardstock for my two cards, the vellum and pale blue can be found in the Special Offer section this week.

Materials used:

Here are my two cards using the same technique, one using the vellum card and the other the pale blue and a stencil I made myself using daisy dies.  To make my daisy stencil I cut out the daisies leaving a large area of card surrounding them from a scrap piece of card.  

I cut a square of the vellum and pale blue card and stamped both with the floral swirl in white ink and embossed it using clear embossing powder.  The home made stencil was placed over the vellum card and the daisies were coloured using ink dusters with dye ink pads in blues, pinks and yellows.  For the pale blue card I used distress markers, colouring onto an acrylic block so I could pick up the colour with my ink duster.  Both pices were mounted onto black card then onto card blanks, marine blue for the pale blue and buff for the vellum.  Die cut greetings were attached to finish.
