Daffodils on a note page

It has been a while since I have been able to share a creation with you. Life interfers with crafting at times as all you crafters out there know. But it was good. I got a special visitor from across the seas and I designed Peter Bear.



I have discovered PowerPoppy as I have told you before and this project is my contribution to the April monthly challenge.

The challenge was to use one of three sketches as inspiration for the project.

 PowerPoppy Challenge

I used sketch 2 and used an image from PowerPoppy's Daffodils stampset. I stamped the image onto Strathmore Paint Pad watercolor paper and colored it using my Prismacolor colored pencils. I added the notepad page to a cardbase and then added the colored image which I had cut out with my Silhouette Cameo.

This is to be a card for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day and so I added the word "Mother" to the front using Concord & 9th's Perfectly Penned stampset and added randomly placed hearts with Memento Rose Bud ink. The sentiment is completed on the inside of the card with a personal note.

Since this month's Kit and Clowder Elements of Nature challenge is also Daffodils, I will be entering this project there too.

Strathmore Paint Pad watercolor paper
Cardbase from Paper Studio
White notepad page
