Daffodil Delight ...

 In the blink of an eye January is no more and we are in to the second month of the year ... that is the UK remains in lockdown ... essential activities only and staying home for most of the time.  As time passes I thought it might get easier but to me it seems harder.

So once again I'm using the time to create or at least trying to create, ideas are a bit on the short side!!  Today has been different as a couple of new stamp sets arrived which provided me with some inspiration to create a couple of cards. It is very unusual for me to use new stamps minutes after they have arrived in the post but I just could not resist this new Visible Image daffodil!   The first card I'd like to share is inspired by thoughts of Spring:

I stamped and heat embossed the background before adding a watercolour wash using distress inks.  I stamped the daffodil and water coloured it with Inktense pencils before fussy cutting the image and adhering it to the panel with foam tape for added dimension.  I finished with a sentiment before adhering the panel to the card base.

I'm entering the following challenges:

I used:
Visible Image - Flower Art Stamp set
                       - Fibonacci Background stamp
UNIKO - Simply Said
Distress Inks - Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Twisted Citron
Inktense Pencils

Keep Crafting!


  1. Your daffodils are a reminder that spring is on the way, and there is a reason to smile. :) Being thankful for the little things is always good, but especially good during lockdowns. It's hard, I know. Sending you a virtual hug!

  2. On this awful dank day outside, I started to feel sorry for myself... missing being able to meet up with friends and then..... your post arrived!!
    What a bright and cheerful card! It did remind me that Spring is on the way and the daffies are coming!! Lovely stamp on a great background.
    Thank you for sharing.
