This week at the Watercooler we have a really fun challenge! It's Anything Goes. That means it doesn't have to be a card. Could be a framed sampler or other home decor item, a 3-D item, even a card - whatever you fancy!
For my project this week, I went to some brand spanking new things you will see in the 2017-2018 Catalogue when it launches June 1. I put in my pre-order as soon as we were allowed to, so I was really lucky to get the fabulous Daisy Delight stamp set and co-ordinating Daisy Punch. Sadly, the punch is on backorder until June 26. But, I promise it is worth the wait!
I just had to create a daisy bouquet and used the new 2017-2019 In Colors for my flowers.
I stamped the daisies with each of the new colours - Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig and Powder Pink - on Whisper White cardstock and then punched them out. Did some sponging around the center of each flower then stamped the centers with Crushed Curry. I used some floral wire for the stems.
The holder is an antique shaker that we had when I was growing up on the farm. I have a lot of items like this - call them my "family heirlooms". The holes in the lid are perfect for putting the wire stems through. Here's a view from the top:
