A Day for Daisies with a Deconstructed Sketch

I hope you are sitting down. You may be a little surprised by my latest card. I am crazy about another digi stamp company. I stumbled upon them a couple of months ago, and I have been itching to play along with some of their challenges. I just haven’t had time. I even colored up a few of their images…but I just couldn’t finish any projects with all of the other things I’ve been doing. Who is it? A Day for Daisies. I. Love. Them. Some of the sweetest (without being obnoxiously cute) images I have ever seen. I want SO many of their digis. So many.

I love vintage things. The innocence. The sweetness. They style. So when I saw this freebie on their site I knew I needed to use it. And, it worked beautifully with this Deconstructed Sketch (by my friend Jen Schults) that was on their blog.

Here is my creation:

Isn’t she pretty? It’s such a lovely image. And I really like Jen’s sketch a lot.

I used my watercolor markers for this. My husband thought I had printed it out in color! I guess that’s a good thing…?

I adhered my flat backed pearls with Liquid Pearls. I love that shiny bezel it creates!

I hope you will go and check out A Day for Daisies. be sure to look at Jen’s new Sketch Challenge as well! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

This looks great Alison! I think it's sometimes a ton of fun to break out and do something outside your normal style and you did FANTASTIC at it. I love the way you colored this... you really made it look perfectly vintage. Gorgeous job with the sketch! Hugs!!
Your right great image without being overly cutsie. Love the way you colored it.
What a fun card and I love the choice of colors. Thanks for joining in on our latest sketch challenge over at ADFD.
