Daisy Thanks

I admit I"m not at all a person to buy or use flower stamps but when I saw these gorgeous Gerber Daisies from Flourishes I just HAD to have them.  I think it's because they are not only gorgeously detailed but big so I have lots of room to play with colour and try different techniques.  
For the first card I wanted to keep the card really simple.  This is my intro class to Copic Colouring.  Keeping it simple with white on white and BG10 background blening.
 This next card uses a combination of Copic Markers, Spellbinders and Memory Box.  Simple white on white with Pink Velvet antiqued edges from Ranger.  Stickles were added to bling the Daisies.
 The last card I stamped Desert Sand (Memento) on Kraft cardstock then coloured the petals with a white colouring pencil.  Copics YR21,24,28 were used to colour the centre and E31 was used to add a shadow in the background.
Of course they just wouldn't be complete without the elegant sentiments also from Flourishes.  I can't get these stamps from my Local Scrapbook Store so I had to buy them online.  No biggie, I just had to be very patient.
