Sooo...did you enjoy yesterday's showcases of the new Uniko Studio birthday/celebration themed sets? You did? Excellent! Are you ready for Day 2? Fabulous!
Today, lovely Bev, my fabulous team and I are showcasing Spring Botanicals Daffodil which, as you'll see, features a single lovely daffodil and several sweet sentiments. This set is open to so many techniques and approaches depending on your technique and design preferences. You'll see ever so many variations from the team that I know will speak to the artist in you...
I used a 'new to me' technique for my first card: distress ink bleaching (inspired by Svitlana's post here). My daffodil is much more defined/lighter in real life and has a subtle shimmer from the perfect pearlized water I used. My 'learning' for next time is to let the water sit for a bit longer before blotting...
From a pastel palette to full on vibrant for my next card. The CAS in me just 'had' to come out *grin* Background Blocks Horizontal Stripes and Simply Said Blocks (sentiment) joining the party...
That's all from me; I *may* have a couple more daffodils waiting in the wings...
Thank you for dropping by! Hope to see you on Sunday...and Monday...and Tuesday...and, especially Wednesday...
Thank you for dropping by!
Super cards Carol. The bleached one is so pretty and the contrast between that just showcases your versatility. :)
I think the soft bleached effect is so gorgeous (and one I'll have to try). Really pretty colours too. Love the bold, CAS card too. xx
How pretty, love that big ole daffodil!
Ohhhh that bleaching technique looks intriguing and your card is lovely. That is one of my favorite color combos! The sentiment is wonderful, too. I also like the bold yellow stripes on the second card. In your face happy is neat! Great job on these cards, Carol! Hugs!
I love that bleached technique you've shown on the first card Carol ... I need to try that one again as it really gives a stunning effect to the card. Swooning at the sheer simplicity of the outline daffodil image teamed with the horizontal stripes - just beautiful. x
Two pretty cards...........love your colours and bleaching in the first one and the outline against the yellow background is very effective on the second one. xx
The bleached card is really subtle and such pretty colours. The second grabs the limelight for me though, so simple and so crisp, love it!
Great techniques for your lovely daffodil cards.
Gorgeous soft sponged background, Carol ... the daffodil is dreamy against it ... and I love those bold, bright yellow stripes with the daffodil left as line art ... crisp, fresh and wonderfully CAS! Hugs, Anita :)
Beautiful cards. That bleaching technique is so fun, but that vibrant sunny yellow steals the show!
Wonderful looking cards
and great techniques.

Fabulous pair of cards Miss Carol...just love the wonderful look you created! So in love with those gorgeous yellow stripes paired with your sweet daffodil!
Two beautiful daffodil designs, Carol. Your bleached daffodil is so soft and beautiful. Love your more vibrant CAS 2nd card too. TFS Hugs
Great showcase of this beautiful daffodil ! Two very different look but they are just fabulous to show the versatility of the stamp ! What a delicious soft blending on you first card, love it ! And a great combination with the Horizontal stripes stamp set for your second card, a beautiful CAS card ! Hugs xx
Two super cards and two very different designs to showcase that super daffodil xx
These look fab .... I love the bleached effect on the first one, the daffodil looks so delicate. The stripey background on the second card gives it a real fun look xx
Two different techniques. Two very different cards but both of them lovely, Carol. I'm partial to the ink blended one for is wonderful color and glow but the CAS one is bright and sunny and a perfect Spring birthday card.
Gorgeous creations with the lovely daffodil!
Such pretty cards and stamps, too! Just placed my order... *grin*
What a delightful duo. I've been wanting to pop by for ages to see how you created the first card and what a FAB technique. I am loving my Oxides and I can't wait to try this. Thank you so much for the amazing inspiration and showcase of Uniko. You Rock! Hugs Bev x
Great idea pairing the daffodil with the horizontal stripes! Love it x
