I added drops of Gumball, Ember and Dijon Alcohol inks and a drop of Gilded Alcohol Alloy ink to an Alcohol Ink Applicator tool and pounced on to a 5" x 7" panel of Distress HeavyStock Yupo paper. I moved the inks around using the Distress Alcohol Ink Air Blower, added drops of Blending Solution and set aside to dry.
I trimmed the panel in half and woohoo, look at the sparkle and shine from the Gilded Alcohol Alloy ink.
I inked the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Stronger Together stamp set with Versamark ink and stamped on to the panel and a strip of Simon Says Stamp Vellum. I tore the vellum so that it would sit in the centre of the panel and the sentiment would line up.
I die-cut the daisy from Distress Watercolor paper using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Wildflower Stems 1 Thinlits and coloured with Distress Crayons and a Distress Detailer Brush. I realised at this point that the stem of the daisy was going to cover up the sentiment so I cut a slit (not very neatly, I hasten to add) with a craft knife, slipped the stem through and fixed the daisy to the vellum with Distress Collage Medium Matte. I then fixed the vellum to the panel by adding adhesive only behind the flower. I added strips of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Label Tape (be prepared for this new favourite appearing on every project for the foreseeable future) and matted the panel on to Idea-ology BlackOut Kraftstock and fixed to a 4.1/4" x 5.3/4" white card blank.
To finish I added small dots to the vellum using a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen and to disguise my clumsy craft knife cutting skills, added a twine bow to the stem of the flower.
