Have A Nice Daisy

This card is for two main challenges Cheery Lynn and Just Magnolia and hAnglar sTanglar.


Cheery Lynn Designs Blog is having their 12th challenge and it is

DRY EMBOSSING

Just Magnolia their 140th challenge is to use a 
WINDOW/DOOR

I embossed Cheery Lynn's Fanciful Flowers having inked the plate before running it through my machine.  My window was created with The Emperor's Swan and Lattice 2.  There is acetate for the window to see my outside scene from the 'house'.  Stardreams was used for the oval and lattice.  The greeting is unknown.

This is a close up of the window:
I was real pleased with the look of looking from a house to the outside where you find a beautiful Tilda from Magnolia.  Here is the inside of the card:
Sitting Summer Tilda is stamped on White Cryogen as well as the Magnolia background.  All coloring is done with Copics and Spicas.  I decided it needed a little more depth so I die cut another Cheery Lynn die, Grass Border. The smallest die of Inverted Scalloped Circle created the sun and I distressed the edges.  I stippled the sky and grass with dye inks to complete the look.  Thanks to a special friend for suggesting this. The little dragon fly was from my stash.  The finished size is 6" square card.

Copics Used:
Skin E000, E00, E02, R20
Hair YR21, YR24
Clothes Y02, YR18, B91, B93, B95
Fence E55, E57
Grass G20, G21, G28
