Dotty Daisies

I'm bringing you dotty daisies this morning... quite appropriate for those keen gardeners revving up their Lawnmowers this Bank Holiday Monday and either love or hate them in the lawn!! At least mine are self contained to the panel on my card :)
These are the daisies from the Twiggy Florets stamp set by Paper Smooches which I've stamped in a very pale ink so I could use my Promarkers to go over them with small dots and make a 'no-line' image.

When I stamped these daisies out I really had no plan for this card so of course I had no plan for the background either!! To protect my cheerful little flowers I made a mask for each so I could use the Ranger Spritzer tool with my promarkers to make a soft background in green which then turns to blue...difficult to see in the photo. The leaves were added as an afterthought too, this time I used a pale green ink to stamp them onto the background so I could dottyify them :)

The sentiment is from Waffleflower's Doily Circle set... I thought it was quite a good match for the flowers and this will go in my stash for when an inspirational nudge is needed :)
