Daisy Thanks

 I used the pretty new Simon Says Stamp Drawn Daisies stamp, from the Let's Connect release,  to make a thank you card...
I LOVE daisies!  I thought this daisy stamp was so pretty!  I had to think a bit how to make the daisies stand out without having to color them.  SO...I colored the background gray, making the white daisies stand out a bit.  I did give their petals some gray streaks for highlights, but a super simple card...full of coloring...which was super fun!  I am plain jane colorer, but sometimes, when the stamp has details, like this one, I think you can get away with being a mediocre colorer.  I have seen some of the beautiful cards made with this stamp, and the coloring that some artists can do...maybe I'll get there someday.  But for now, this coloring, in it's simplicity makes me happy!  I cut the stamped image down to fit my A2 card, popped up a bit, and added a die cut and layered Simon Thanks die.  Here's a closeup...
Such fun...hope you are all doing well and staying safe, wherever you  are in this wonderful but crazy world we all live on!  
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  2. Outstanding!! Thanks for mentioning you're not a colorist..neither am I, which is very frustrating in this hobby of ours. This is such an excellent way of approaching these daisies and you really nailed it!

  3. Perfect Lisa! Simple is almost always the way to go (in my world at least). I love how you chose to crop the image to fit your card.
