Sometimes when I make cards, I have an idea in my head, I make the card and mmmm it is Ok but nothing startling, and sometimes you make the card, and its wow that turned out better than I thought! Well this card is a bit like that, I think it turned out better than I saw it in my head, I think it is the blue and yellow together!
I started by making daisies in a range of colours, which if you make them with 120 - 160gsm card they turn out to be really quite strong for your cards.
I decided to make a variety of cards with different colour combinations, so I started off with sponging some stitched rectangles with Distress inks in a variety of colours that complimented the daisies I had made.
I set to and made one on video and then some other colour combinations.
Here is the video on how I made them.
