Hi everyone! A late post today - getting this in at the nick of time for a couple of challenges. Though this is a simple card, it was a little more complicated than it looks. The daffodil stamp is just a single bloom, and I had seen this video from Jennifer McGuire on how to do mirror stamping, so I thought I'd give it a try. My first effort using black ink didn't come out nearly as well as Jennifer's, so instead I decided to use Desert Sand ink which worked much better. I stamped the reverse of the daffodil first, make a reverse mask, and then stamped the original image. I colored the images with Copic markers and colored pencils. After that, I decided to keep the rest of the card simple. This was a learning experience for me and I look forward to trying this technique again.
I'm playing along with three challenges today. I was inspired by the daffodils at Inspired By, and the sunny yellow chair at The Card Concept. My daffodil stamp is from 2015 (and this is the first time I'm using it, my bad!) so I am also sharing this at Retro Rubber.
