Daffodils for Easter

What a week so far... my interview for the job was Monday afternoon and so now it's over bar the wait for the outcome on Monday.  So to take my mine off that... I've been crafting...I saw a number of wonderful cards that people had made with Jane's daffodils ( available here) that I just had to buy it.  This is what I came up with


Normally I paper piece by adding coloured papers to white card, but for this one, I did the opposite.  I printed the main image on the yellow paper and then again on plain copy paper. I cut out the white parts and used my Xyron mini to stick them to the yellow.  I highlight the trumpets with an orange pencil and added glitter glue down the veins on the white.  I layered three times with my nesties and added to a cream card base that had been embossed in the CB with Swiss Dots.  I used a photo of my own daffodils taken last Sept as my inspiration.
I also made a couple of male birthday cards.... soon to be Son in Law is having a birthday next week
Had another go at the Cling Wrap technique for the browns and reddish background.  I used 4 Memento ink colours to make it.  Good ole Three Ferns ( just great for boy cards!!)  The teal-blue card is one I CASE'd from Jenn here.  I stamped the background with versamark to create the tone-on-tone look.

Thanks for stopping by.  Just think the weekend is nearly here.  Only half day at work for me as I have a follow-up appointment with the specialist ( and any excuse for a half day!!!) at lunch time.  I'll just potter on home and make a start on the weekend's housework.  Take care
