Daisy Tilda

I have really been a stamping kick lately. That's a good thing except for I am not getting my housework done or my lawn mowed. Do you know anyone who works for cheap - real cheap? :)
Anyway here is my card.
 Tilda was colored with copics with some white pen highlights. The background is done with a technique I haven't use in years but I think it is pretty cool. It is done with a Kalidicolor ink pad and a brayer. Ink up the brayer making then keep the yellow end in the center and keep rolling around in a half circle. There will be corners that are blank so ink up the blue part again and roll the corners. (Is this clear as mud?) The clouds are stamps from Penny Black. First I did them with some puffy paint but didn't really like them so I added some stickles but that didn't do the trick either. I was rooting around in my drawers and came across some fun flock and that was just right. The fence is done with a Martha Stewart punch as is the butterfly and the scallops on the bottom. The yellow paper is some I have had for 10 years I bet. You just never know when you will need something. I tied baker's twine around the yellow and then added flowers with yellow stickles for centers. Mini pearls are on the butterfly and the centers of the punched border.
Here is the inside. The little flower in the corner is done by cutting two half flowers from the border punch and putting them together with a small pearl in the center.
I stayed up way too late last night finishing this card. It just wouldn't let me alone until I finished it. I'll pay for it today by being tired. :)
