World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop - Day2

Morning Everyone,
Well, today I am taking part in my first ever blog hop to celebrate World Cardmaking Day - I hope I have done this right....................... Eeeekkkkkk - here goes:-

Welcome to The World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop on the 3rd of October.
This is day 2 of a 5 day blog hop with different participants each day.
If you want to start from the very beginning, head back to the start here at Gill's Blog, as she is the host, to see what she has created then continue on with the hop from there.

Here's my card for the Hop..................
I have used one of my current favourite stamp sets from Stampendous - Daisy Stem Trio.
I used one of the stamps and did some watercolour stamping to make the background using Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I then stamped the Daisy Trio over the top and added some more Distress Ink with my waterbrush to colourise.
Hope you like it!
Don't forget to leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning the Blog Candy up for grabs (all info back on Gill's blog) and then continue on to the next person who is taking part in the blog hop here
I hope I have done all this right!!!
Well, best crack on - I've got lots more prep to do for Aberdeen this weekend
Big Hugs
Amy

Ace card Amy! The daisy stamps are simply stampendous! Might have to invest in some and make them into gerbera daisys - my favourite flower!

Well done!
