Double Daisy Aperture Card

Hi Sylvia here today with another card made with the Oak House Studio  large double daisy set, this is becoming one of my favourite stamps.  This card came about by accident, I was playing around with papermilldirect buff coloured card and stamped the daisies and embossed with clear powder without thinking what I wanted to do with it.  I painted the inside of the daisies with bleach to enable me to colour the flowers and left it to dry.


The daisies were painted with jubilee red pure colour chemistry ink,  I added a little to a paint pallet with some water and used a paint brush.  Rather than getting a bright red the daisies became a mixture of orange and red, more red was added to the top daisy and center of the bottom one giving a fabulous mix of oranges and reds.  The buff card inbetween the daisies looked a bit drab so I coloured it with a black marker, and the daisies really came to life.

Having seen quite a few cards recently with layered apertures I thought this a good way to show off the daisies. Buff and black apertures were placed over the image and this was mounted on orange and cream card.  Buff coloured cord was tied round and a sentiment from the friendly words set attached. Sticky fixers were used to stick the layers to a buff coloured card blank.

Hope you like the effect using the bleaching technique and hope you give it a try it's great fun and Oak House Studio's daisies and the sunflower stamps are ideal for this technique.

Fabulous card! I love the mix of reds and oranges on the daisies and they really pop against the black background!
