Summer Daisies

Today I have a summer card to share with you! I printed my daisies on watercolor paper and colored them with Prismacolor pencils. After blending them (with baby oil) I added some accents with a Sharpie marker, white gel pen, clear glitter, and tiny white pearls.
I dyed my seam binding with salty ocean distress ink so everything would coordinate and match! Inside I printed the FREE Scripture printable from Word Art Wednesday and stamped over it with a small daisy stamp from Stampabilities.

Supplies and Tools:
Power Poppy Gerbera Daisies, Watercolor paper, Prismacolor Pencils, Baby Oil (for blending), White Gel Pen, Sharpie Marker, Tiny Pearls, Clear Glitter, Tag Die (Sizzix), Mixed Media #3 Dies (Tim Holtz), Crackle Background (Stampin' Up), Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn, Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), Sunny Flower - Friend Sentiment (Stampendous), Patterned Bugs (Inkadinkado), Seam Binding, Labels 8 Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Washi Tape, Word Art Wednesday Freebie, Small Gerbera Daisy (Stamabilities)

Beautiful creation! Thank you for blessing us with your entry to the WORD ART WEDNESDAY challenge. Please join us to a new challenge starting 6/21/17. Leaving you the encouragement found in Psalms 16:8 (NIV) which says: "I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken."
