More Happy Thoughts


     I like this sentiment so much I had to use it again, but this time with the rest of the stamps from the Daffodil Elements set by John Lockwood with Creative Expressions.
     The image panel has been stamped on white card and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Detail Black, then coloured in with alcohol markers. In the set there are some separate flowers that can be stamped and cut out to build up dimesion on your picture, I chose to use three flower heads and mounted them on foam pads.
     The DL card had a rather large space at each end of the image panel so I used another of John's stamps sets to stamp and emboss in CS Bright Gold some butterflies.
 
      I stamped on spare card the same butterflies, then coloured with CS Drawing inks. I coloured the butterfly on the card as well as the spare one so when the wings are up it still looks nice. The back of the butterflies wings are coloured the same pale blue as the sky.
     The image panel is stuck down before adding the top wings of the butterfly.
     There are several sentiments with this set so it's quite versatile which is what we all want from any craft item, John's stamp sets offer a range of uses making them value for money.
