I went with a CAS version of this set, there are so many things you can do with it and daisies are just happy flowers! I embossed the daisies in black, then misted the paper with water and using a brush, moved colors around in the water on the paper. Cut it out, mount it up and voila!

I added this one a bit late, I couldn't get a decent shot of it yesterday, had to wait for sun. I need to make one of those light boxes everyone seems to have for taking photos at night! I wanted to have the image of daisies growing along a fence line. Thanks for looking and happy hopping!
