* Crafts Galore Encore: Daffodil


April brings another Anything Goes challenge at Crafts Galore Encore

The sponsor this month is the fabulous Vera Lane Studio who are offering 2 digi sets for the winner. 

Janet kindly gave the DT some digital stamps to work with and here is the card I made:

Spring is definitely in the air now and so I decided to use the Vera Lane Studio Daffodil set to make my card.
I coloured the images with Copic markers and made a watercolour background with Distress Oxides. I applied the Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers inks to a stencil, spritzed it with water, then stamped the ink onto card. I love the effect this gives! I used the stencil technique to added more patches of ink where I thought it was needed. I added some stamping and some texture paste followed by paint splatters. The edges of the background were inked with green and the very edges with black for definition and framing. The patch of daffodils were glued directly onto the background whilst the girl was popped on foam pads. The lovely sentiment come in the set. I cut it into tiny strips and adhered it to the background.

Many thanks to Janet Klein at Vera Lane Studio for generously sponsoring and supporting this challenge. We hope you'll pop over to the shop to see the many lovely products on sale. Janet has designed stamp sets which are available through AALL & Create.

Please pop over to Crafts Galore Encore to see the DTs wonderful designs.
