Delightful Dahlia!

Good Morning!

It's a delightful day here in the North East so far so I thought it fitting to share a card I made the other day using my new Delightful Dahlia stamp set. I'm loving playing with my new stuff! I hope to find some time to create later today!

I made this card quite late at night and I was too tired to really concentrate on colouring, so I stamped the large Dahlia image 3 times and used the Summer Sunrise Copic Trio and coloured each flower one colour. Then simply cut out the flower in decreasing layers and adhered them together on the card.

I used both the leaf images from the set and stamped them randomly to create the background matt. I kept the card simple, keeping the focus of the card the Dahlia! This is another card which uses neon type colours with soft nudes!

Below is a close up of the Dahlia, you can see in more detail how I layered the flower and also added some yellow pearls to the centre. I'm loving Kraft card stock, but I must get out of this habit for always reaching for it!

Off out now to enjoy the weather and run some errands. I then have to tidy my desk and craft space so a Mac switch can take place! Have a great day & thanks for stopping by!

I love that you started at the center and gradually chose a darker yellow for the petals. Looks wonderful!

Hi, Beverley! I really like this card! I especially like the pairing of the black-and-white background with that beautiful dahlia! :-)
