For the Love of Stamps Daffodils In The Sun

Morning everyone.

I would like to share my first DT samples for the new stamp sets launched this weekend by 

This is from the beautiful Daffodils In The Sun stamp set

For this card I cut a strip from the front of the right hand side of the card blank. Then drew two lines on the inside of the card to create a panel. I then drew two lines on the left hand side of the card blank to create a second panel

The daffodil flower heads were stamped randomly in the two panels in versafine ink then coloured with distress inks

The flower heads, stalks and leaves were then stamped on the card blank, using a masking technique,  to create dimension. These were then coloured in.

Using the coordinating mask, I drew round Sunshine in a black fine line then matted this onto black card. This was added to front of card with foam pads to complete.

I inked up an acrylic block 6 times, in yellow then green inks, spritzed with water, then stamped onto a catd blank to create a tartan effect. Using a masked sheet I stamped the flowers,  leaves and stalks in versafine,  added the hearts stamp and the sentiment,  to complete this sample.

Thankyou for popping by and I hope you liked these samples xx
