Pink Gerbera Daisy


I love pink gerbera daisies, and I tried to recreate one here using one of the large flowers from the Big and Small Flowers clear set. This one is made of 2 shades of pink BoBunny dotted paper and a green center, pulling the colors from the stripe. I snipped the petals apart on the top layer of the flower and ruffled them for dimension, also pop dotting between each layer. The smaller version of the flower was used to shadow stamp in Worn Lipstick on the kraft card. Suzanne just sent me an envelope of goodies, one of which is this fun stretchy green gingham ribbon, which I thought added even more dimension. Thanks, Sue, I love it!

Supplies: Cl374 Big and Small Flowers, AR137 Script Messages, kraft cardstock, BoBunny tutu dot and flamingo double dot papers, unknown green print paper, Kaisercraft Bloom stiped paper, Worn Lipstick Distress, Versafine onyx black, and Memories Artprint brown inks, bit of green gingham ribbon
