Wishing You A Happy Day


Just a short posting here to show you a card that I've just finished.  It's a front-panel side-step card.

If you're interested, you can find the template for this card HERE.

Here's a close-up of the sweet image being featured.

- Davina (#192), an Art-By-Miran digital stamp, available from artbymiran Etsy Shop HERE

I've used my markers and a few coloured pencils to colour the image--colours listed below.

Love making these flowers--they're easy to create.
If you're interested here's how.  Use any daisy-like flower diecuts/punches.  I cut them out of white cardstock.  Apply colour(s) from distress ink stamp pads.  Mist some water from a sprayer until slightly damp and the ink spread.  Use your stylus to shape the flowers.  When dry and the flowers have stiffen, apply glue to the centres and add some flocking powder to the glue.  Shake off the access flocking powder.
