CDS Sneak Peek - Daffodils


This is another of my favourites of the March releases. This stamp is the March Flower of the Month - Daffodils. All of the stamps that I have been showcasing the past 4 days will be available from Clear Dollar Stamps tomorrow!


This card was made for a sketch challenge that the the design team was given. I have to say that I was absolutely fascinated by this card from Becca Feeken, so I had to give her technique a try :) I love the idea of making this Spellbinder's frame to have my daffodils look like they are growing out of it - it so reminds me of Spring! Instead of the ribbon that Becca used, I substituted vellum and still managed to achieve the soft look that I was going for (gotta love it when that happens!)

Such AMAZING details and the flowers growing out of the frame must have taken forever to cut/color...but are wonderful! Your coloring has always BLOWN me away! What a great case of Becca's. Youve achieved that softness so beautifully with your vellum substitute. Kim, your designs are superb and of HIGH quality! LOVE YOUR WORK! YOU ROCK GF!!

I love that layout/idea and the way you used the vellum is a fantastic idea. I keep forgetting to use my vellum. I must get it out to try to remember to use it. THanks for the inspiration.
