Daffs .....


A set of Artist Trading Cards made for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum in the theme of 'Spring Flowers' .....

The bases were cut to 2.5 x 3.5 inches from re-cycled food packaging. I then cut the background from orange card. This was stamped along two edges with a leaf stamp in Versafine black ink. The backgrounds were added to the bases.

I then stamped an image of Daffodils onto white card in more Versafine black ink and coloured in with Posca markers. The frames were cut out and applied centrally to the backgrounds as shown.

Each ATC was edged in dark green with Versamagic chalk ink and some green dots added to the background decoration to finish .....
