I can’t believe in a few short weeks we’ll be saying goodbye to the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and hello to the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. But……you need to say goodbye to some items so you can make room to say “HELLO” to new items. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Lol! Today’s Long and Narrow Bright Daisies post is just that scenario. I fell in love with this years 6×6 Designer Paper Prints especially the “brights” color family! The script and gingham printed designs this year were my favorites. Today’s Long and Narrow Bold Daisies layout makes me do my “happy chair dance”. [smile!]
Honestly, I had a couple Mango Melody daisy pieces along with the White Flax Ribbon on my work table. These were my inspiration pieces to start designing.
The orange family is not a color I would normally go to, but combining the Mango Melody script designer paper and White Flax Ribbon made for a bright and bold statement. Love it!!!
After creating the Mango Melody design I thought “hey, let’s try this in Melon Mambo”. Sweet! On all three designs I sponged the centers of the daisies and the edge of the layer beneath the script designer paper. Sponging the edge was a great way for me to get a darker tone of the color that I was working with.
Okay, so after making two of these fun and bright designs I said “well I might as well make a third”. Lol! After perusing the remaining Bright colors I chose Bermuda Bay. I think it is just as cute, what do you think? Another tip–I cut the White Flax Ribbon in half for a narrower band so the Daisy stayed the focal point and makes your ribbon go farther. [sweet!] AND I just had to add some sparkle so I punched a 3/8″ silver foil circle and topped it with a Clear Faceted Gem (retiring as well).
I did stamp a tiny bit. 😎 The “many thanks” sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set punched with the Classic Label punch. Really, you could use just about any sentiment you might need.
