Daisy Sitting with Glasses - Bizzy Bec's April Challenge





The challenge at Bizzy Bec's this month is to make your own designer paper, either digital, stamped or inked & then make a card with it.  Since I haven't a clue about making digital paper, it was going to have to be stamped.  I took brown cardstock & used Stampin Up's Crosshatched stamp for the background.  For the white background, I used Whimsy Stamps Life Defined background stamp & brown ink.  The circle sentiments are also from Whimsy Stamps & this set is titled Circle Postmark Sentiments.  The seam binding ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl, the brad is Stampin Up, & the doily is from Bizzy Bec's.
The image is from Bec's new line of digital stamps called Daisy & this little gal is Daisy Sitting with Sunglasses.  The image is coloured with Copics & I punched the little flowers out of some of the background paper & added some Opaline pearls from Basic Gray.  The collection is available in Bizzy Bec's store now.  If you head on over to Bec's Blog, you can view some of the design team's sneak peeks & challenge projects.  Bec has also put up some free digital papers for you to try.

I think you did an awesome job making your own bg. I would have thought the white layer was paper. Super cute card.
