Another Gingham Card

I rediscovered this lovely little stamp while tidying my craft room - I must do this more often - who knows what I might find next!

I put her together with some little flowers from Wild Orchid to make this card which I thought I would also enter into the Promarkers Gingham challenge.

The sentiment is from a Barbara Grey stamp.

 I stamped Daisy  onto card and cut her out - that was fun! The flowers around her hair were very difficult to cut out I can tell you.

I used some paper from my stash to create the gingham and heart background. The image was coloured with Promarkers and the sentiment background was made using the Letraset Letrajet airbrush system which I have only just discovered and absolutely love! The colours used were:
Ivory and pale pink for the skin tones.
Ivory, vanilla, and gold for the hair.
Ice Grey 1 was used to highlight her white top.
Blossom for the pink tones in the jeans, the  flowers in Daisy's hair  and for the sentiment background.

The leaves were made by cutting petals from a paper flower and colouring them with grass green Promarker - highlighting the veins by using the new fine Promarker tips and the butterfly was from my stash -it was folded and stuck onto card with silicone glue to make it 3D.

The lace was also from a piece I bought from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I  really enjoyed making this card which is a little more fancy than the cards
I usually make - I do hope you like it .
