Simple Daisy Jar

I really love the Cheesecloth backgrounder. I paired this simple, but textural background with a really beautiful image drawn by Asela Hopkins.

The colors are not your usual daisy... but I was inspired by a designer paper. I created a second card, which I'll share with you in another post. The rich colors, reminiscent of Autumn, were calling to me...

Here's a close-up of the daisies. I colored them with my Copic markers:

I kept this card very simple to highlight the beautiful Cheesecloth backgrounder and the daisies. The sentiment can be added later - or inside. Let me know what you think...

Thanks for looking,

  1. This is such a lovely image, your stitching and coloring is wonderful

  2. Simply stunning Lisa. Your coloring technique is incredible.

    Do you think R & L could send you to NH to give give me a few lessons and tips on the copics?! *wink* I think it would count as a business deduction. LOL...

  3. Lovely Lisa - saw this and the other one on the CHF gallery - they're both beautiful. I like this without a sentiment on the front, the simplicity of the layout is just perfect as it and you might run the risk of losing that if you add a setiment, IMO.
