For this hop we are featuring the letter D.
This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set, an embellishment or a style. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their D element will be featured in their post.
If you came from the talented Stephanie at Quilted Scrapper then you're on the right track!
It has been so snowy and cold here in Ottawa (-26C/ -17F), that for the letter D, all I could think of was Deep Freeze, De-ice my driveway and De-fog my car windshield. To clear my head I thought - sing a happy song. And Dashing through the Snow came to mind. Folks, I am so Done Done Done with winter...
So here is a card to remind me of the sunny springtime to come. .
|Delightful Dainty Daffodils|
I stamped the daffodils on Daisy White cardstock and coloured the dark yellow shades of the petals with Shinhan's Golden Yellow marker (Z2452) and for the pale yellow, I dipped the CTMH blending pen (3174 ) into Canary ink (Z2643) and used it like a paintbrush to flick a few strokes of soft yellow. It's really easy to do and gives a more realistic effect. I stuck bitty sparkles (Z1263) in the center of some of the daffodils so the light would catch them, kinda like a sparkly diamond.
The stems were coloured in Shinhan's Leaf Green marker (Z2454). To add depth to the stems, I went over the bottoms of them in a darker green in Sap (Z2463).
I matted the image and the sentiment with Kraft cardstock (Z1375) for an earthy feel. I trimmed the sentiment into fishtails and added bitty sparkle on either side of the sentiment and popped it up on 3-D foam tape (Z1151).
I used CTMH card base available in a value pack (X254) and stuck everything to a piece of Canary cardstock that I ran through the Quatrefoil embossing folder (Z1926). I distressed all the edges with chocolate distressing ink (Z1296), channeling springtime mud.
TIP: Use the non-stick scissors (Z1836) for cutting anything sticky. They are sharp and sticks and gunks up the blade.
