Daisy & Dandelion

In addition to the Daisy and Dandelion Challenge blog, their creator, Erica Martyn has started a monthly challenge on the D&D Official blog!

The first challenge for March / April is the following sketch:I've used one of the decoupage images (made it correctly this time and used all the pieces!) which has been layered onto a very fab fuchsia coloured flower (from Jozza!) and that has been layered onto a handmade pink vellum flower - you can just about see it. Now the vellum flower was to be used for something else but it didn't work out right, so I left it on the table as I knew I'd use it at some point!

The backing paper is a download freebie and is part of the Daisy and Dandelion collection (apologies for the poor picture - it was early morning and the sun was shining - honest!) and I've inked the edges. I've layered two different colours of ribbon across the front of the pattern, but not quite managed to stick it down too well as you can see from the flappiness on the photo!

The sentiment was originally stamped but the ink dried a lot paler than I was expecting so I went over it with a pink watercolour pencil.

Card candy has been added to the bottom corner.
