STV Color Spotlight 20

Here is a simple sample for this week's color challenge, this crisp and sunny pairing with a pop of blue made me think of trying to create a patterned background using "Bring the Bling" and one of my other favorite sets, "A Year of Flowers"! It was fun to mix it up and use the blingy stems with the realistic looking daisies, makes for a happy pattern! Blue, white and yellow are always such fresh palette with this type of flower! I stamped the daisies and bling flourish with Vivid Inky Blue. Then I colored the centers Copcis Y08 and Y15. TIP: Because this blue ink is NOT waterproof, instead of coloring on your yellow in circles like you normally would, just dot it on until you get the deep yellow you are looking for, dabbing mostly into the white areas. Pushing through the blue with the yellow and you'll get more of a green, make sense? :) Greeting is also from "A Year of Flowers", punched out with 1" and 1 1/4" circle punches. By the way, WHICH flower from "A Year of Flowers" is your absolute favorite?? (I know this daisy gets see a lot of ink in my house!) Be sure to sure the tag STVCSP when you upload to the STV gallery using this color combo, good luck and I hope you win some free stamps! Have an awesome weekend (psst, I just bought two more GREAT deals, wanna know?? or are you getting sick of them? Email if you're curious and 'll send them on the sneak, hee hee!) PS I am still sick, but thankfully I started this card before I was feeling bad, but thanks so much for all your well wishes and prayers and VERY kind comments about my card yesterday, I still my head buried in the sand over that!
