Inspired by Cornelia


I am always inspired by my Muse: ChristmasVisions team-mate Cornelia. She has a great artistic talent and always makes beautiful projects. For instance, go check out her inspiration for this week's MCV Challenge - I hope we'll see you playing along!

This week, I was particularly inspired by a daisy card she made using Stamplorations flower stamps (scroll down a bit in this post to see her card).

I still had my Lisa Lara (A Jillian Vance Design (sorry, retired)) daisies out after making this card and decided to give Cornelia's technique a go.

I embossed the daisies in white and then used Distress Inks in Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron, Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber and Persimmon to watercolour.

I finished the card with a sentiment from Dala Horse by Neat & Tangled. It was 'surgically altered' to make use of the space around the daisies.
