Daisy ring

Hi Crafter's

A second post for me to day and I want to get this done before I go to bed. Every one else in my  house has gone up but I'm still tapping away on my keyboard.... how sad am I...

Well I had better get on before my eyes give up and go to sleep without me.

I made part this card yesterday and didn't know what to do with it. I had tried a few things but they hadn't looked quite right so I put it to one side so I could come back to it later if a better idea came to me. Meanwhile  I went over to the  Less is More  blog to see what the challenge for this week was.

This week is a colour challenge and the colour is.....  YELLOW

I looked at my card again and I knew what I was going to do.... Wa hoooo I can finish it now.

Here is my card....
This was created with one of those plastic stencils that can be used as a mask and sprayed with spritzers or you can sponge through them. In this case I used embossing paste. I had to mask off the areas inside and outside the stencil so that I didn't get it where I didn't want it.

Before the paste dried I sprinkled it with glamour dust and left  to dry while I struggled with what to do next.
After visiting the Less is More web site and finding out what the challenge was I coloured the centres of the daisies with a yellow permanent marker, finishing off with a yellow bow and a sentiment.

Thank you Chrissie and Mandi you helped me finish off my card. :) Hope you like it.

Well I'm off to bed now I have just looked at the clock .... It's 12.30am.... and my eyes are now starting to feel very heavy.
Thank you for stopping by and visiting my little blog.  I will see you again soon with another card.
