The daffodils in the this card evoke Spring

 For me, daffodils are the flower of Spring and Spring has sprung here in Sydney! It's my favourite season!

This image is from the Four Seasons Floral stamp set that can be found in the Beginner's Catalogue and it's a set that I like very much for its versatility.  It has multipurpose and pretty images as well as great sentiments and the images can be left simple for the beginner or dressed up for the more experienced stamper.

This is a more dressed-up version with its layers and ribbons but still quite simple.

I stamped the image repeatedly with Bumblebee ink and then watercoloured in a bit more Bumblebee ink to colour the petals.  I used a Mango Melody Stampin' Write Marker for the flower centres.

Using a Just Jade Stampin' Write Marker, I went over the stems and added a little detail to the leaves before watercolouring the leaves with a touch of Just Jade ink.

I masked off the bottom of the strip and sponged with Just Jade ink and then decided to add the ribbon and bow.

I hope the card you've seen here on my blog today has inspired you and brightened your day.  You are currently visiting Stephanie Fischer.  Please see the list below and hop through all of the people on the list to see all our projects.  You don't want to miss any!
