Daisy for mum

Mothers day is sneaking up on us here in the UK.  So that's why I thought I'd do this image from Pickled Potpourri - Grand Botanical sponsor for Through The Craft Room Door this week.  It's Team B's turn and we've got some fantastic makes for you.

I've decided to do the image as a daisy so coloured it with ivory and vanilla ProMarkers with gold ProMarker for the centre.  I've blended the colour out on the petals to make it look almost white.  The leaves by printing two leaves then using olive green and marsh green blended out towards the centre to highlight them.

To enhance the colour of the daisy I've chosen yellow themed papers from Lili of the Valley/Raspberry Road Designs - Father Knows Best.  The papers have all been distressed and to the top layer I've added some Stampendous Fran-tage embossing enamel in Aged Silver, Aged Gold and Shabby White.

The ivory organza ribbon with hand tied bow is from The Ribbon Girl.  I've them mounted the fussy cut image and a stem cut from green paper scraps over the top.

Other embellishments added are a sentiment from Lili of the Valley Set 8 Art Pad, some butterflies from Prima Shabby Chic Treasured (Live & Love Craft) and some pearlised self adhesive gems.

Hope you like my creation for Mother Day
Happy Crafting

A beautiful card, and wonderfully coloured - thanks for the blending tips, as I'm hopeless at working out what shades work together!
