SDC235 - Include Flowers in your Project

 Its Saturday evening already and I haven't made my SDC entry yet, panic mode is setting in. 
I was a little distracted by other projects this week the latest of which was an Art Doll, check out the older posts if you would like to read all about it.

So moving on, over on the SDC  blog this week Carol Fox is our hostess and her challenge is to include some lovely spring flowers in our projects. This is what Carol said about the project:
"Spring is just around the corner in the Uk. So share with me a project with flowers in it."

I decided on a card  for this one as I have a few more birthdays coming up and because of being a bit late in the day to make a larger project.
I began with a mask with a central flower, I applied Gelatoes directly onto the mask to see what would happen if I added water and used it as a stamp. This method worked well on an actual stamp as in  last weeks challenge, hence why I tried this out, don't know till you try it Wright.
Anyhow didn't work out as I wanted or expected but it did create a nice colourful splatter  background to work on.

So I used the mask again with distress ink and used an applicator to push the ink through and create pretty flowers. 

 A 14cm x14cm square was cut from this card inked with black around the edge.
 A stamp was then used to create the field of Daisy's effect firstly in watering can archival ink then over stamping in black. A white marker was used to colour the flowers, yellow centres were added and a touch of green added to the stems. This was then attached to the card base.

My little character and cat was stamped and coloured with water colour pencils, cut out then layered onto the card along with a few die cut clouds with a wording stamped onto the larger one.

Card complete, for more inspiration hop on over to the SDC blog here.
