Gerber Daisies Take #2 (the easy way)

 


Sometimes I just don't fancy colouring so wanted to make an easy card using the new Whimsy Stamps Gerbera Daisies and Die Combo that I used on the no line watercoloured card I posted yesterday. 

I inked a panel of Bristol Smooth with Distress Inks = Shaded Lilac, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade, Dried Marigold, Kitsch Flamingo and Festive Berries.  I set it aside to dry then stamped out the Gerbera Daisies with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I prefer to ink then stamp, that way the embossing stays bright white rather than discolouring.

The dies hadn't arrived from the USA thanks to the not so fabulous "Covid" postage service, so I fussy cut the border (hence it not being as perfect as using the die would have been).  I stamped a sentiment from the Simple Sentiment Strips Clear Stamps on a panel of white card and adhered the inked flower panel on top.  

I created a scalloped frame using the Quilted Rainbow Inlaid Die and popped this on the card front with foam tape.

A super quick and easy card, I really need to make more of these.
