Grandma - I tried to PM you, but it said you weren't accepting PMs - so I'll ask my questions here!!
I'd love to make a card like your Saffron/Navy Daisy card - it's GORGEOUS!! Can you tell me which color inks you used where?
What color did you use for the Floral BG - is it Not Quite Navy on NQN cardstock? About the Daisy - did you stamp the outline with Versamark before embossing? Versamark isn't listed. Or did you use Craft NQN or Navy? What about the inside of the flower? Is that Craft ink? It looks like NQN, but would that show up on the black cardstock? Then did you color with the metallic pencils over the stamped image after the outline was embossed??
Thanks in advance for the details about this card - it would be PERFECT for my Stamp Camp later this week - I'm featuring retiring sets - and I LOVE Daisy!

Metallic pencils blended with gamsol were used on the daisy after I embossed using versamark and gold ep. The metallic pencils don't have colors listed, but the one I used here had the color like the nqn so I used nqn cs. Floral bg on nqn cs was stamped with nqn ink classic, not craft. Taken w/teal is framing the daisy. Did 1/8, 1/4, 1/8 inch for the mats on the Daisy. Stamped sentiment with nqn. Also used the perfect layers tool to cut the mats. What a wonderful invention, time saver! Can't see in the picture, but I stamped so saffron cs with the cheesecloth bg in saffron ink. Hope that covers all your questions. Glad you like the card, had fun making these last weekend. Got my Daisy set at a garage sale last year for 12.00!! What a deal!
