stamps and markers. . . .

and a few other things went into the making of this card:


The monthly challenge at Stamplorations is to use stamps and markers.  Stamplorations also has an anything goes challenge if you use Stamplorations stamps.  I think the daisy is the star of this card and since I also used a Stamplorations sentiment, I hope it qualifies.  :) 

Anyway, for the background, I stamped the leafy vine from B-line Designs with gesso on a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper.  After it was dry, I sprayed the panel with Dylusions sprays and let that dry.  Then I added distress inks through a Heidi Swapp stencil and also around the edges of the panel. 

The Stamplorations daisy was colored with Tombow markers and then I added some white dots with a Sakura white Gelly roll pen. The center was colored with  the Delicata gold ink using the tip of my finger and I added some black dots with a Sharpie pen.   I colored white cardstock with distress ink and cut my own stem and leaves for the daisy.  The sentiment is from Stamplorations.  Finally, some black bubble dots were added and the piece was mounted on some black cardstock and then a rust card base.

This is yet another offering for the Simon Says Stamp anything goes challenge.

Thanks for your visit!I
