A Spring daisy bouquet

Hi there!

I haven't put away my  Spring daisy set from Altenew after I finished my previous card, and I guess the Altenew March inspiration photo was still on my mind... so I tried something I have never done before... a whole card front filled with flowers!

I was trying to capture the look of a close up photo of a bunch of daisies... let me just say there was a lot of masking and stamping involved... but it was so much fun!

Even more fun when I started the coloring process with my Zigs!

It's bright, bold and fun, and I once again took inspiration from the obvious colors, and the curves as I explained here!

From the top to show the dimension:

... and a bit closer:

Because there is so much going on, I kept the rest of the design simple, but to be honest, I didn't want to cover up anything either!
I used my craft knife to cut a simple curve, and added a strip of glittery washi tape to the card base, popping up the two split panels with fun foam.

Het maskeren was vast nog het meeste werk, maar het is een prachtig resultaat!

So glad you didn't put away this daisy set, Hannelie. All that masking and stamping was well worth it; this turned out just beautifully! Your coloring has given these blossoms so much dimension and depth, too. I absolutely love the split panel with the glitter showing. This is a beautiful card!! Bev

So different to what I am use to seeing here but boy you nailed it. Absolutely eye catching, stnning, love it. And that touch of gold sparkle a perfect finish to those wonderful colours.

Fun card. This one definitely says "Celebrate!" It also looks like it took quite a while to make, and I'm sure the recipient will love it.

Your panel of daisies certainly has the WOW factor in my book, what a lovely design and the vellum 'happy' and arc of glitter it's all a great combination without covering up the loveliness!

Wow Hannelie...I LOVE your card front filled with gorgeous masked daisies and so beautifully colored with your Zigs. I love all the white space you left on your colored flowers. Adds so much dimension with a shadowy effect. Another stunnng card my friend with your new Altenew stamp set. TFS Hugs..

I'm glad that daisy stamp urged you to make another card, Hannelie, because this is outstanding. I've pinned it for future reference. I usually just leave a card front plain but your arc shows me that there are ways to add just the right touch to take the card to the next level.

Hello Hannelie: I was so surprise to see this card made by you in our gallery, I'm used to seeing your beautiful CAS cards and this one just blew me away. Love this panel filled with this colorful flowers, it was well worth the effort of masking and coloring.
The touch of gold across it finishes this card beautifully.
Thank you for sharing with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, hope you play again next time.
