Roses in kraft

Look at this pretty daisy stamp. Another wonderful image from JustRite's latest release. I do love daisies! You can't see the coloring very well in this picture, I was having a the devil of a time trying to get a decent shot. But I used two contrasting colors, a reddish violet and a pale, creamy yellow. I really should try and keep track of the colors I use, but I just keep forgetting. Besides, by the time I'm finished coloring, there are PILES of pencils all over my work area!
Anyway, I really wanted a fuzzy textured flower center, but of course, didn't have Flower Soft or flocking in the right color. So here's what I did; I took a pinch of my Polar White Flower Soft, dumped it in a plastic baggie, added a couple of drops of Adirondack reinker, a pinch of glitter, and spread it out on some paper to dry. Once it dried, I glued it on as usual. Pretty cool, huh? Necessity is the mother of all invention, I always say!

Thanks for dropping in!
