MIM #206 Stamping and Mixing Patterns

This week's MIM is sheer joy!
Loving patterns and layers, it tickles to have Danielle
show us how and what and some of her tricks to create magic on a card.

1st off, create a coordinating set of papers.
Danielle suggested starting with the larger imaged paper.

Danielle's signature style is using bright clear colors,
and I tried to keep that look when I chose yellows, aquas, and Berry Sorbet.
The large group of daisies is from Friendship Jar Fillers, and the smaller posies
from Brushed Blooms.
First stamped the daisies and colored them with Loew Cornell Watercolors.
Smaller triple blooms stamped in Hero Arts Wet Cement.

I ended up with 5 stamped papers, just because I was in my happy place doing them!
Didn't use all 5 in my card, but I have plenty do 3 more cards for sure!
Starting on left, Arrows from Heather's new Noted set,
so is the grey chevron pattern, splashed with Yellows.
Top patterns from Happy Trails,  and Melon Berry dots from Polka Dot Basics.

Used 3 of the 5 pattern papers, and a cutout of the daisies.
Also added a fussy cut of the top daisy.
Had some tags from Cuppa Love die left over from the Blog Hop, so stamped a heart
from Bubble Talk in Aqua Mist, and 'you're Super' in Smokey Shadow.
Glossy Accents on the daisy centers.
Can't wait to do this again with other stamps!
Like I said, pure joy!
