Daffodil Daydream for FMS#525
This sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches caught my eye because it is like having a great big clean slate ready to fill. I had to remind myself the FMS challenges are supposed to be "clean" or I would have overfilled this space.
I choose the Daffodil Daydreams stamp set because it's one of my favorite flowers and right now they are popping up in yards all over my neighborhood. However, I decided to go with a non-traditional color. I think when most people think of Daffodils they think of yellow but they really do come in a variety of other colors.
I used the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder on my card base. Instead of a straight line on my 2nd layer, I decided to use the scalloped edge from the Scalloped Contours Dies. I love the way this dies scallops the edge and has a stitched look. I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used the Stampin' Blends Alcohol ink markers to color it.
