Fresh as a Daisy

Yet more direct to stamp colouring with Distress Markers, then going in to the stamped image with a water brush for this card, this time using a Magenta stamp that I picked up cheap at my local craft shop last weekend.  I can see this stamp being very versatile, it'll lend itself to so many techniques.
I used Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade Distress Markers for the stamping.
 I went round the edges of the stamped piece of card with Tumble Glass Distress Ink, spritzed for a mottled look, then used the same daisy stamp, and the same Tumbled Glass ink to add a pattern.  I then used a white pen to create a border of dots all the way around the edge.
I used Grand Spellbinders to make a frame to spotlight the centre of the card, inked it with more Tumbled Glass, frantaged it with Shabby White embossing enamel, and stuck it to the card with foam pads.
The flowers were made with Woodware punches and the foliage with a Spellbinders die.  I stamped a tag and sentiment with Papermania stamps and further embellished with an organza bow, gems and pearls.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Crafty Catz - #235 - Use 2 Dies - Spellbinders Grand Circles & Spellbinders Foliage 
QKR Stampede - #92 - Anything Goes
The Stamping Boutique - #21 - Flower Embellishment
As You Like It - Favourite Embossing Technique and Why - I love Frantage Embossing Enamel because I love the shabby, uneven look you get with it, it's different each time because of the different sized grains in it, and it's unlike any other product on the market.
Crafty Ribbons - #93 -  Anything Goes with Ribbon
Sweet Stampin' - Sat it With Flowers
Southern Girls - Punches and Die Cuts
Crafty Cardmakers - #177 - Going Round In Circles
Crafting Musketeers - #14 - Stamped Image
