Purple Daisies

Products Used:

  • Memory Box Delightful Daisy
  • Lawn Fawn Wavy Borders
  • Zippy Laser Mandala
  • Avery Elle Sentiments
  • Nuvo Shimmer Powders
  • Copic Markers

Place the mandala onto a piece of watercolour paper and sprinkle Nuvo shimmer powders all over – use colours of your choice. I used Blue Blitz and Violet Brocade in my sample.

The fun part is when you spritz the shimmer powders with water – using a mist spray bottle such as the Tim Holtz bottle, or mini misters.

The powder reacts, and colours literally burst out. Adding more water adds to the fun. Dry this a little by leaving it for a while, or gently waving a heat gun over it before lifting the mandala off.

I used a Lawn Fawn wavy border to cut an interesting panel for the top half of my card. This allows a sentiment and the feature embellishment to display without being hidden, but without taking away from the beautiful background we just created.

I cut a Delightful Daisy (they really are delightful aren’t they?) and coloured it with Copic markers. You could use any colouring medium you like here.

Basically, I used a dark colour of purple and blue at the base of the petals, and a mid tone to extend that darker colour out and a lighter tone on the outer edge of the petals. I used dots of brown in dark, medium and light markers to colour the flower centres, adding texture, and of course green for the stems.

Using the back of your curved die cut, arrange the sentiment stamp in a gentle curve to match on an acrylic block. Stamp the sentiment to the left of the panel – keeping in mind where your leaves will fit.
