Masked and Sponged "Smell the Daisies" Card

Sometime over the weekend, I decided I am ready for it to be spring.  Despite the snow on the ground, I decided to reach for the stamp set "Picking Daisies" designed by Lisa Lara Originals.  Kecia Waters on the blog today.

On a white cardstock panel, I stamped the lovely batch of daisies from "Picking Daisies" with Marvy Black dye.  I masked the center of the daisies using masking film.  I then put two strips of painters' tape from the top of the card to the bottom, framing most of the daisies.  I wanted a small portion of a daisy outside of the frame.  I proceeded to sponge Distress Ink Salty Ocean and mojito green pigment ink to serve as the sky and grass.  I carefully removed the painters' tape and masks. 

I colored the daisies with Copic markers and Copic White.

I stamped the sentiment, also from "Picking Daisies", with Versafine Onyx Black.
