Upsy Daisy Silhouette Style Card

Gotta love Upsy Daisy. It's a solid, flat image but I've given it depth by firstly inking up the whole flower image in Baja Breeze. I then took my trusty sponge daubers and daubed (is that a word?) Not Quite Navy onto the tips of the flowers before stamping the image on Whisper White. You probably can't see it well in this photo but I finished up with Dazzling Diamonds on the same flower tips applied via my 2-Way Glue Pen. You can probably figure out the rest of the card...Kiwi Kiss, Urban Garden DSP, Best Yet stamp, Circle, Circle Scallop and Scallop Edge punches and Organdy Ribbon (shhhhh, it's retired but I love it so much that it's making a guest appearance).

At Convention, Pam Morgan (the Tim Tam fan) showed us a similar technique, but she used three colours on the Upsy Daisy stamp, Kiwi Kiss for the stems, and Regal Rose and Rose Red for the flowers, all applied with sponge daubers directly :

In summary, this is one Silhouette technique. And on the subject of tips and techniques, check out all the different ways you can use sponge daubers (courtesy of Angela Sargeant). I seriously wonder how I did paper-craft without them.

Better go but I'll be back tomorrow to wish all the Mums a happy day.

Love from Crafty Kim
