Pick a Daisy card ,Paperartsy Eclectica Lin Brown set 26

Hello again everyone.
 Hope you enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend & managed to get some crafting done?.
 Other than working in the shop on Saturday I had a relaxing weekend & made this card for my Mother in law who is celebrating a big birthday tomorrow. Not saying how old though as she's not keen to broadcast it & after all, age is just a number, as my husband wrote inside.

Here's the card I made using Papersrtsy Eclectica Lin Brown 26 stamp set & stencil 024.
As I wasn't incorporating a number on the card I thought it fitting to use Daisies as my theme because
 my daughter ( her Granddaughter) is called Daisy.
I created the background with a colour wash using Koi Brush Marker pens on watercolour card.
I mixed some green mica powder with pearlescent texture paste & applied it through the stencil & then heated with a heat tool once the stencil was removed. 
This added more texture for my background which I stamped with the foliage & open Daisy from the stamp set using Peacock Feathers & Dusty Concord distress inks,

I stamped the main Daisy twice with black memento ink onto white card & coloured with the same colour Koi Brush markers as I used for the background.
I cut these out & layered the head on top of the base Daisy, curling the petals & leaves to add dimension.
I added the stamped sentiment, cut into segments & finished the card with stickles glitter glues & liquid pearls to match the colour scheme.

Off to bed now, I'm feeling rather full after we took the birthday girl out for a vintage tea party this afternoon. We filled up on lots of yummy tea,cake & sandwiches!.

Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment if you can.

See you again soon
