Jar of Daisies

Kathy's put the coloring bug in me with her 30 Days of Coloring challenge, and I'm sneaking in last minute for Hero Arts' Nature Challenge, so I pulled out an older flower stamp and made a jar of daisies!  Putting flowers in a jar or a stoneware pitcher is almost always the way I arrange flowers at home.

Daisy Jar

supplies: Hero Arts Be Happy (flowers), colored with mostly markers but also some colored pencils, Love Jar, Simon's Sending die and Sending & Wishing stamp, white, yellow, and coral cardstock, vellum for jar

I colored my flowers in various warm shades and fussy-cut them out, detaching them from their stems.  After stamping my jar on vellum and cutting that out, I laid everything out on my background panel and then glued only the top of the jar down, so I could lift it and add the stems and leaves; then I attached the edges of the jar to the background with teensy drops of glossy accents around the edges.  To finish I layered my flowers, popping 2 of them up with foam adhesive, and then added my sentiment.
