Daisy, Daisy!

Here is my entry for the Craft Stamper 'Take It, Make It' Challenge July 2016. It is my first ever for this challenge and I'm pleased I read the Craft Stamper blog earlier this week! below is a quick 'how to,' to explain the resources and techniques used. 

As this is 'Take a Stamp' month along with 'Anything Goes,' I have made a canvas and decorated it with a Julie Nutting Prima Doll stamp, Clarity Daisy stamp and  Clarity 'Petal' stencil. 
The background canvas was coloured with a combination of Bursts and Liquid Metals. The 'Petal' stencil was overlaid and Translucent Texture paste coloured with Fresco Finish 'Orchid' spread over. With the stencil removed, the coloured paste was dusted with Nuvo 'Hot Pink' and 'Diamond' glitter. The petals were outlined with a variety of Pitt pens of nib width XS, M and B.
The Doll and Daisy stamps were stamped onto turquoise and purple 'Burst' papers and also a dictionary page, prior to being coloured and cut out. They were added to background using Cosmic Shimmer glue. Shadows and highlights were added using Polychromos. 
The canvas was edged with Black Soot, some additions from Sakura glitter pens then mounted onto Hunkydory Centura Pearl Deep Purple and Yellow Gold.

Another departure from my usual craft work, but oh! how I enjoyed the freedom to mix and match resources!
