Anika *Day 2*

Here's our next paper pieced beauty by Anika: And here's my take: The flower, Penny Black 4159K Sundial, was stamped onto 2 different patterned papers and then inked with Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick Distress Ink. The center lines on each petal were colored with Copic Markers. Each flower was cut out (omitting some petals on the flower stamped on text) and then layered. Flower center is Candi dot with twine. The leaves were created using petals from the flower and were colored with a Faber-Castell Design Memory Crafter Stamper's Big Brush Marker. Background created by lightly inking white cardstock with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and then spritzing with Glimmer Mist. Sentiment by Penny Black, 30-064 Good Catch.

See you tomorrow with LOTS of cards- I have a big post prepared for ya! :)
