Sweet Poppy Stencils "Daisy" Birthday Card

I raided my file of previously made backgrounds and came across a Brusho background that I felt would work with a stamp I had in mind.  This card is the result.

Using the Brusho background, I stamped the Sweet Poppy Daisy from their "A5 Daisies" stamp set, using three Versafine Clair inks (Acorn, Summertime and Tulip Red).

I then stamped the sentiment, which is part of the Sweet Poppy stencil stamp set called "Hugs and Kisses" in Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink.

I used Derwent Inktense pencils to colour the daisy, using lots of different shades of red, orange and yellows.  I then used a metallic gold gel pen and a gold shimmer pen to add extra detail to the petal area.  I wasn't totally happy with it, so added some dots of red, yellow and orange Posca Pens to the petals too.


  1. The vibrant colours on the daisy are stunning Sam

  2. This is a gorgeous daisy and love the different colours you used to stamp it Sam. I did think you had gold embossed it at first, but obviously reading your post it is added gel pen detail which looks great and in several pretty colours too, and the brusho background was an inspired choice. x
