So excited I had some time to play with my NEW Daisy Delight stamp set so I could share it with you! It will be available for order from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! 2017-18 Annual Catalog on June 1st.
My card design was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #217
I used my Aqua Painter to wet the background area on a panel of Watercolor paper. Then I dipped the tip of the Aqua Painter in ink from the lid of Soft Sky Ink pad and applied it to the wet area. I then did the same with Marina Mist Ink to add a little depth to the background. While it was still slightly damp, I stamped the flower stems in Lemon Lime Twist, Wild Wasabi and Garden Green Inks. Then I let the panel dry thoroughly.
Once dry, I stamped the tiny flowers in Flirty Flamingo and the little sprays in Marina Mist. Then I stamped the small daisy in Flirty Flamingo Ink on Powder Pink Cardstock five times and used my Snips to fussy-cut the blooms. I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the blooms as shown. Such fun!
I used Fast Fuse to adhere the water color art piece to a panel of Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock, which I then wrapped five times with Linen Thread. Then I used Dimensionals to adhere my art piece to the card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Delight Stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink on a strip of Powder Pink Cardstock and punched one end with the Triple Banner Punch. After shaping the banner a bit with my fingers, I adhered it to the art piece with Multipurpose Glue on both ends and a piece of a Dimensional in the center. I made a bow with 5 loops using the Linen Thread and adhered it to the front with a glue dot.
For the final touch, I added a new medium size Clear Faceted Gem to the banner and a few silver sequins to the art piece.

Lovely card, Sue!
Wonderful take on the sketch with your beautiful bouquet of daisies!
Thank you Donna.
Truly beautiful card, I envy your talent. The bow, how did you do that? Did you tape all 5 strips to the back and then bring together to tie is bow? I am horrible with bows.
Hi Judy, I wrapped the linen thread around the art piece five times and secured the ends in the back with tape, before adhering it to the card front with dimensionals. I used a Bow-Easy tool to make the bow, and then glued it down. There are other bow making tools that would work, too, like the ones with dowels on a stand. I usually make the bow separately and adhere them, rather than try to tie them on the card itself.
Thank you for your reply. The wrapping the linen thread around the art piece. It is beautiful. I will try what you did.
That card is absolutely gorgeous!!!!! I am so jealous of your talent!
