'Buttercups and Daisies' - parchment pattern by Judith Maslen

Here is the second project completed at our last workshop - 'Buttercups and Daisies.'
The important point to this pattern was to emboss the buttercup petals from the front to give a curved and shaped look.  I think this works. My colouring was done with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils although Judith designed the pattern for the use of felt tip pens. As frequent visiors to my site will know - I hate felt tips and don't use them. Judith knows this only too well and there is a certain gleam in her eye when she hands me the pattern at the workshop.

Here is the finished work:

I love our trips down to Barton on Sea and I am looking forward to the next trip in September. Judith is such a fabulous designer and teaches us so well.


  1. Wow Carol! The buttercups really look as if they're curved.

  2. Wow this is gorgeous Carol, who would have thought that buttercups and daisies could look so good.

  3. The border and heart look so delicate surrounding the beautiful buttercups and daisies, a beautiful card.

  4. Beautiful delicate card, love the design and buttercups,
    I am not keen on felt tip pens either and your colouring is beautiful, embossing on the right side will have given a lot of depth. Well done gorgeous card
