Rustic daisies for Polkadoodles

Hello lovely peeps and welcome to my new follower :)

Just popping in to show you a 'rustic' card I made with the Daisy Days stamp set from Polkadoodles


First I stamped and embossed the daisy head, stems and tiny circles onto Kraft card with Versamark ink and white embossing powder. I wet the edges so I could tear it down to the size I wanted.

I went over the card with Walnut Stain distress ink and then spattered water on

Next I coloured in the daisies with Titanium White and Rich Gold acrylic paint by Daler Rowney

I covered up the daisy heads with sticky notes and spattered on white and then gold paint over the background.

I covered a 6x6 card base with corrugated card 'made' from a cardboard box (just peel the top layer of paper off) and then added some torn white card on top before layering on my topper.
It's finished off with a sentiment from the CD and a button on top of some natural fibres.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Simon Says Stamp (Mon)  Add Some Texture
Mod Squad Challenge - Use Kraft
Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers #64 R is for Resist Technique
ABC Challenge L is for Lots of layers
Penny Black and More  Anything goes with a stamp
Happy Little Stampers (Mixed Media)  Recycle

Thanks for stopping by,
Katrina x

That card is just so lovely, I hope you don't mind if I have a go at something similar but with different stamps. I thought red poppies might look just as good. Thanks for sharing.

Katrina Bufton said...

Of course I don't mind Shaz, I am thrilled that this has inspired you to have a go. I think poppies will look fab. Hugs,

What a fantastic piece! It was so great to be able to follow your creative steps and see your "vision" emerge! I also love how it's elegant and rustic at the same time.
