Heirloom Daisy Jar

I had to share this card with you. I also posted this on my CHF gallery. I would encourage anyone who is using CHF stamps to check this out. There are SO many great ideas! The forum is also ever-growing, with techniques outlined, challenges, and suggestions for the wonderful Thomas Kinkade images. I've added the links to my side bar...

OK... so back to this post. Every once in awhile, I'm REALLY happy with a creation. This is one of those times.

The jumping point for me was the Daisy D's Heirloom Swatches mini papers, that I bought with an online retailer. It's just luscious! The colors were calling to me!!!

I stamped the Daisy jar in Coffee Bean Brilliance ink and heat set, before coloring with Copic markers. The flowers were colored in muted reds and browns to mirror the designer paper. I stitched the cheesecloth tan panel to the designer paper, added brads and hardware to complete the project. The tan panel almost has a leather look to it, which pairs with the rich fall colors.

I was SO happy with how this completed. It's not an everyday occurance to me, but I'm thrilled!

Thanks for stopping by~
