This week I am using the fabulous Leafy Background combined with the daisies from Taylored Expressions Oops A Daisy Stamp Set from Creative Expressions.
The background to the card has been stamped with the Leafy Background stamp using Maroon Archival InkBlack Soot Distress Ink has been applied to the edges of the background piece for definition.
I stamped the daisies onto white card using Maroon Archival Ink, masked off the flowres and stamped five blooms in total. Two of the daisies have been given added dimension with two layers added along with a coordinated button threaded with twine.
Background stamping has been added using the background stamp from Tim Holtz Classics 9 Stamp set. The stamped piece has then been matted onto a pice of black card.
An enamelled heart has been added to a bow, created by placing a heart cookie cutter onto the Leafy Background stamp and pouring hot Blue Raspberry Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel into the cutter. I have then applied Golden Light Gilding Wax to the heart to highlight the wonderful texture.

Don't forget it is "Fun Time Friday" once again on the Creative Expressions Facebook page, simply leave a comment and you could be in with a chance of winning a fabulous prize.
