Sometimes its the details that count...

I love being able to add the smallest of details, bringing a card to life!  I was playing around with the MOJO sketch and came up with this little beauty:

The paper daisies are fun to color and are still in the current catalog (pg. #175).  They come white which is nice because there are several ways you can color them. The smaller daisy was put in a small dish, and a drop of Cherry Cobbler reinker was added to the top, giving it that deep dark color that I was after.  Actually, it was a little TOO dark so I added water to it, and it softened to the color that I wanted.  To the colored water that I now have, I added the large daisy painting it a pretty shade of pink!  I heat dried them, because I was in a hurry to use them, and added some sponging to the edges of the large daisy.  Used some Gumball Green stitched ribbon for leaves, popped it all up on the 2 1/2 inch circle punch, layered it with a larger scallop die cutting it out with the Big Shot (gosh, I love that thing!!).  Paired with some textured cardstock and DSP, you have yourself a great card to give to someone special!

Cardstock:  Chocolate chip #102128, Whisper White #100730, Daffodil delight #119683, Cherry Cobbler #119685, International Bazaar DSP #126920
