Plum Daisy's

Hi All,

A few weeks ago it was my sister in laws birthday and I wanted to make her a card that she'd really like. She loves purple so I decided to use Perfect Plum and Pale Plum to make her card. My partner absolutely loves when I make cards using brayering so he wanted me to do a sunset type card using brayering. I thought using purple was a little out of my comfort zone but really like how the colours looked with a brayered background.

To get the background I stamped the Upsy Daisy Stamp Set in Black Stazon on Whisper White CS. I punched a circle out of a post it note on the sticky part and stuck it where I wanted my moon to go. Then brayered pale plum first until I got the colouring I wanted. I the layered over with Perfect Plum and blended the colour in to get the colours fading into each other. I then removed the punched circle and done! EASY! I was going to touch it up with some dazzling diamonds but my sister in law has a 2 year old and I just invisioned her playing with the card and removing all the glitter and spreading it all over the house! The glitter would really give it a pop though.

Stamp Set: Upsy Daisy, Sanded BG, Best Yet
Ink: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Black Stazon, VersaMark
Cardstock: Whisper White, Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, Basic Black
Accessories: 1 3/8" and 1 1/2" circle punch, Brayer, Post it notes, Dimensionals, Stamp a majig

Oh and before I go I have a photo to share of my beautiful daughter Riley. She is 6 months old today (doesn't time fly) and I feel totally blessed to have her in my life. Here she is in the bath cracking a huge smile! Doesn't she just melt your heart???

Thanks for looking!
