Pastel daisy

I've had my honeycomb stencil for a while now and always used it on bee-themed cards, but today I decided to play with it as a general background stencil.


I stencilled with pink and green Brilliance inks then stamped the daisy (from Just For Fun) and leaf (old unmounted stamps whose origins I've forgotten) onto vellum and heat embossed them with white opaque detail powder.

I coloured them from the back to keep the colours pale then fussy cut them and attached them with micro-dots behind the densest parts of the stamping. A stamped sentiment and some tiny pearlescent butterflies completed the summery design.

I am sharing this with

  2. Fabulous card, Jane, I love the embossed background. Your card would be perfect for the current Butterfly Challenge as you've used 6 of the 7 elements.

    1. I realised once I'd made it that it fitted the Butterfly challenge - but one of the others I've shared it with only allows a maximum of 3 combined challenges. I'm sure Mrs A won't mind as I've already made two cards for her special challenge

  6. The stenciled background is so soft and pretty. The vellum flower and leaves were a great idea! They keep with the soft look.
