Today's Flower - Daisy

The Rosewood Daisy Head is a cute little stamp that can be used a number of different ways. Lauralee created these cards to demonstrate the versatility of the stamp.

This card shows the image stamped across the bottom of the card. Coloured and trimmed to create a decorative edge. Lauralee then scored the card just above the stamped images and slightly below the fold for dimension. I believe the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. Gems and ribbon were added to complete the card.

This card uses the Rosewood Daisy Head and Wildflowers to create the central image. The Daisy Head was stamped and embossed in white and inked to add colour. The images were cut out and gems added. The Wildflowers were stamped with 2 colours of green for interest. The pool of green at the bottom of the Wildflower image anchors the image on the card. The Daisy Heads were added and the card was distress with a soft yellow ink. I don't know who this sentiment is from.

The card with the orange ribbon shows a similar technique the to first card I've shown. The card on the right shows the Daisy Head stamped in lines across the card; coloured and a black gems added to finish. I don't know who this sentiment if from either. Lauralee uses a corner rounder on many of her cards. It adds a little something from the traditional square cards. A wrap of black ribbon and you are done.

I have also used the Daisy Head to create an all over background with a soft coloured ink.
