Daisy Label Card - by Sioux Jenneys

Hello everyone! Sioux's my turn again and I'd like to share a card with you :)

1. I lurve the watercolour style of the Daisy stamp and inked it up with Distress Inks Scattered Straw/Spiced Marmalade/Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint then stamped it onto a piece of watercolour paper and tattered the edges inking with Distress Ink Tea Dye.
2. Place the stamped image (it is ATC size by the way) on a square of paper that is just a little smaller than the card front you are using and lightly mark in pencil where the top and bottom corners sit.
3. I desperately wanted a plain shape stamp to put behind the sweet daisy image to ground it but I did not have one then I remembered I had one of T!m's Styled Label dies so cut the shape out of funky foam added a bit of non permanent sticky stuff to the back and inked it up!

(I find using white foam is best as you can see how much ink you have put on it!)

4. Stamp the label in Adirondack Lemonade just to the side of centre.

I do believe this is my new favourite yellow ;)

5. Stamp the Stampers Anonymous T!m Alphabet Block from the Artful Artifacts plate over the label shape using Adirondack Lemonade again.

6. Stamp the Stampers Anonymous T!m Flourish from the Fabulous Flourishes plate over the label shape in the bottom corner using Adirondack Lemonade again.

7. Tatter the edges and use Distress Ink Pumice Stone to add contrast.

8. Add a sentiment of your choice in Distress Ink Rusty Hinge.

9. Attach the background square to your card front and attach the focal image to this.

Job done!

Thanks for looking........See you soon!
xoxo Artyjen

This is very beautiful. The colours are so soft and you have really made the image come to life. Very clever.
