Cheerful Daisies



Just as the saying goes, April showers bring May flowers and at Flourishes -- we are watching the daisies sprout!   Just take a trip to see all of our Flourishes designers today and you're sure to be inspired as they show off our creations using our set Gerber Daisies
Here is mine....

What I love about Gerbera Daisies is the vibrancy you can find in some of their flowers.  So many colors and varieties and an abundance of color!  I wanted to give these that cheerful theme.  Coloring is done with Flourishes New Letraset Aqua - Watercolor markers.  I am having a lot of fun re-learning how to watercolor again :)  I'm a little out of practise!  But these markers are deeply pigmented and with such control because of the tips, and easy to blend with the blending pen.  

I used this months' SFYTT from Jen and just tipped the main panel because of the style of bouquet which shares a bit of that diagonal design.   The papers are MME - Howdy Doody.   



Some new ribbon in the store, and this awesome Prima Monarch Flower Center (on sale!).  


Now head on over to see what the rest of the Design Team has cooked up with these daisies this Friday!


And, if you like what you see on their blogs, you should know that today and tomorrow only - you can add this set to your collection for 20% off! Just use the code DAISY at the time of check out!

I was just going through my craft room yesterday and found this un-used set! WOW Christine, this is just gorgeous! Flowers are my favorite, and Gerber Daisies are one of my ALL time favorites! Your coloring is always so beautiful and if you don't mind, I'm going to try my hand at creating something similar. Do you like the new Letraset markers better than Copics? I just bought a huge supply of Copics because of what I saw on your blog and now they have these? Oh boy..me thinks I am in trouble! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous creations. They always inspire me.

Christine, this is drop dead gorgeous -- that orange and yellow is just so striking and how can you be so fabulous at all mediums? You need to drive south about 8 hours so you can show me first-hand! :-)

This is stunning Christine. I love the yellows and oranges together. My BFF was over last night and she saw this on the Flourishes site and LOVED it! :)
