Daisy

This week over at Just for Fun the challenge is for us  to Try a New Technique.
Pop over and see the super examples.
So, I have tried a new way to me, of distressing backgrounds.  It is an amazing method and one that I will keep using.
A couple of weeks ago I watched Sheena Douglas demonstrating her new Paint Fusion techniques.
 How to make a  distressed background, using watered down pva glue and household matt emulsion was  the one I have experimented with. I have to say her ideas were so different that I had to buy a few of her stamps.
Now I know these flowers are supposed to be daisies and mine look a bit blue. If I had left them white you wouldn't have seen them on my magnolia paint. I also need to get a chisel brush that she recommended some time soon. The card is completed with papers etc from my stash.
This card will also fit in with The Stampmans new challenge theme Floral, with Mothers Day coming up soon.

Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.

  8. I was lucky enough to get all the stamps as part of Sheena's DT and they are all gorgeous. Once you get to grips with paint fusion it's a brilliant technique. It's still a work in progress for me. You have done a gorgeous job with these daisies and I love the background.
    Thanks so much for joining us at The Stampman this time.
    hugs Lisax
