First, I stamped the pretty daisy image multiple times onto Soft Sea Foam. I wanted to create the feeling of a meadow with the greeny background.

Using Watercolor Pencils, I have coloured the leaves and flowers with Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and White to highlight them.

The Love of Leaves Stamp Set provides the lovely sentiment. This is cut out using the Double Oval Punch. I also added a couple of daisies to coordinate with the main stamping.

Both the Stamp Set and Punch made their first appearance in the January-June Mini Catalogue. Don’t forget that some of the items in this catalogue won’t be available after the end of June.

Using a Stampin’ Blend in Daffodil Delight adds colour to the Crinkled Seam Binding.

This is then looped behind the sentiment.
