One Layer Daisy

Wow!  This is two one-layer cards in a short time period!  Can you believe it??  Actually I won this Gina K set called Flowers for Daisy with my last one layer card, so it seemed appropriate to make another! :-)

I stamped the daisy on my kraft cardstock, masked it, and then stamped the greenery to make leaves.  I colored the image with prismacolors & oms, but it got lost on the card, so I sponged in some white chalk ink to highlight it.  Halfway through stitching around the card, my bobbin ran out, and since I knew that I'd never be able to match the holes if I tried again, I just left it and decided to give it a shabby look.  I sponged the background with cocoa ink and a jumbo sponge dauber and then stamped the card very lightly with SU's old Canvas background stamp.  I love that stamp!  I'm so sorry they discontinued it.

As a final touch I added a PaperTrey Vintage button with some twine, attached it with a glue dot and called it good.

Thanks for looking!
