Hello folks, hope you're all having a lovely Easter weekend and those of you with the white stuff are keeping warm. We haven't had more than a sprinkle here thank goodness although it's still so chilly the poor daffodils don't want to show their faces lol
To make up for that, I decided to make something for the current Alphabet Challenge which has reached D and the theme of Daffodils was picked by fellow MMM DT mate Caz. I had a bit of a dilemma as I don't have any daffodil stamps or images so a search on the internet was necessary and I found a gorgeous vintage postcard to use as the basis for my card. Hope you like my bright and cheery creation.
I made the background paper by sponging Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink on a square of card and then stamped the Hobby Craft damask design on with Mustard Seed Distress ink. I distressed the edges of the paper and curled them up slightly.
I distressed the edges of the postcard with an emery board and inked with VersaColor Marigold ink before adding to a green mat with edges distressed in the same way.
I fussy cut a spray of vintage daffodils to make a floral embellishment and added to the card wrapping layered green and yellow ribbons around the background paper with the flower stalks tucked under. I wound the floral embellishment round the postcard before sticking it on to give a dimensional effect.
Have a lovely day tomorrow.
Hugs, Fliss xx
