You must know by now how I love Marianne's dies to create layers and embellishments on my cards, but until now I've not had any Marianne stamps. Thanks to Marianne herself, all that has changed and here is my first card created from the Don and Daisy collection. This one is DDS3308 called Daisy's birthday and I've coloured the image with Copics, my usual skin tones plus E70, 71, 74 & 77 for hair and brown areas, G40, 82 & 94 for the couch, E81, E50, 51 & 53 for the cream areas, V01, 12 & 15 and RV63 & 66 for the pinks. I still dont have any Marianne papers so have used more of the Nit Wits magazine freebies, inked the edges with brown chalk ink and matted with green textured card from my stash.
Here's the card. I've used various Marianne dies to create my embellishments: the pink swirl from LR0116 and the leaves from LR0117. The green centre of the flowers from LR0122, the pretty green lace edge with LR0161, and the pink flower is from the new Craftables set CR1203. The pink gems and pearly hearts are from my stash.
I'd like to enter my card into the Marianne Design Diva's Monthly blog challenge to show your new stash, and if you'd like to win some fabulous goodies from Marianne then hop on over to the Marianne Design Challenge blog and enter the weekly Candy draw - oh and I nearly forgot, there's still time to enter the anything goes challenge on this blog too.
