Oopsy Daisy

Welcome to Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Company's 
                        May Blog Hop!
This month's New Stamp Set Releases are
Oopsy Daisy Featured May 15
Get Reel Featured May 16
Scenic Selections Featured May 17
Flamingos on Vacation Featured May 18
I inked the single daisy image from the set with markers before stamping onto white card stock. I then colored it in lightly with Copic markers. Do you see that cute little lady bug on the leaf? It's just under the bow! Love that! The panel is embossed with the Swiss Dots folder before mounting onto a black panel cut/embossed with Spellbinders Deckle Edge Rectangles. I used a slot punch in the left side to thread the ribbon through. The panel behind the daisy has the right side punched with the EK Success Scroll Pattern punch and then mounted onto another piece of black to make it pop up from the background paper. That panel is embossed with the Stylized Flowers folder for a little more interest and dimension. I added the gingham bow (ribbon from MFP) using mini glue dots to hold the tails right where I wanted them. As a finishing touch I added Ice Stickles in Orange Peel to the center of the daisy.
