Sheena Douglass-Paint Fusion Daisies-Mothers Day Card

In the UK yesterday was Mothering Sunday.
Here is the A5 card i made for my mum, less is more with these images i think-.
I used Sheena Douglass' Paint Fusion Daisy Stamps and paint, although she suggests using a light blue for the backing of the Daisy petals, i havent got that colour at the mo, so i used lilac instead, with the yellow of the Centura Pearl card from Crafters companion, it doesnt notice, i added Tim Holtz Distress Ink Dried Marigold onto the card with cut & dry foam, which seems to lift the daisies out of the page, but the best thing for giving dimension to the flowers is Crafters Companion Spray & shine, this give a hard varnish which no only protects your paintings but brings all the colours out in the picture, adding dimension. I simply printed the sentiment out on MS word and ripped the paper and again distressed it a bit with Dried Marigold ink pad.
As this is my 1st attempt at Daisies,i do hope i inspire people to have a go, as i really cant paint, but following Sheena's instruction on the dvd it has made it possible!
