Daffodils have always been very special for me. As a kid, each year we couldn't wait for the Daffodil Festival and the big parade. It was so wonderful and so beautiful. So when I saw this new stamp set called Abundant Hope (item #117054 - wood mount OR item #118547 - clear mount), I had to have it. It definitely doesn't have to be used just at Easter, the daffodils are perfect for a Spring card, a Mother's Day Card, or any special occasion.
I used the Scallop Trim Border punch (item #118402) for the accent on the sides. This is a Sale-A-Bration free item thru the end of March. Then using the Watercolor Wonder Crayons (Pg 154 of the main catalog) and blender pens (item #102845), I handpainted the daffodils and leaves. I'm so pleased with the results.
Just a reminder that when you do watercolor items such as the daffodils, for best results it is recommended that you use our watercolor paper. It's on Pg 158 of the main catalog. Here's more information about it:
100% cotton, cold-pressed 140 lb watercolor paper. Sized perfectly to layer on your card front. 3 3/4" x 5". Item #105019 Watercolor Paper (20 sheets) $6.95
