I Favour You!


I love gerbera daisies.  They are so filled with colour, happiness and bring me joy every time I see them!  Today at Splitcoast, one of the inspiration pieces had gerbera daisy party favours that inspired me to create this card.  
I masked the panel, sponged with Distress ink in yellows, then stamped the flowers using a watercolouring technique.  I did that by colouring my stamp with different shades of Memento markers, spraying with water then stamping.  It gives such a great effect and the results are always a surprise...love that.  
I am also entering this one in the Moxie Fab challenge, The Wonders of Watercolouring.

Have a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by.

Supplies:  stamps; Penny Black, Rubbernecker/ Memento markers/ Distress ink/ pearls
