Chocolate Baroque: Spring Daffodils

Good morning, fellow chocoholics. Are you ready for Spring? To get you in the mood,  here's a card I made using stamps from the Spring Bird - Daffodils DL sheet. The colours are fresh and light - the perfect palette for these vernal blooms.

For the background I used  The Crafters Workshop Tie Dye stencil and Distress Inks in Mermaid Lagoon, Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass. The greeting is also from the Spring Bird - Daffodils set,  stamped with VersaFine Majestic Blue.

I stamped the daffodils with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured them with Graph'It alcohol markers before fussy cutting and adhering them to the inked background. For the all important sparkle, I applied Glitter Yellow and Glitter Green from the Wink Of Stella Brush Tip Glitter Marker Pretty Garden set, with a touch of the Gold Glitter marker to add depth to the flowers. To finish the project: a bow tied with some sheer blue ribbon.
