Sunny Studio - Spring Card with Cheerful Daisies

Hello crafty friends! I have a very springy card to share today featuring Sunny Studio stamps. I think this combination of spring daisies and little chicks is sure to brighten anyone's day. 

This card is A2 size and I started with an ink blended background.  I used some Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Twisted Citron, Bundled Sage) and blending brushes to create my two toned background.  I then splatted the bottom 3/4's of the background with thinned green acrylic paint.  I always use acrylic paint for splattering because I can control the opaqueness of the splatters by adding more or less water to the paint. 

I wanted to cover most of the card front with daisies.  I stamped out seven daisies and ten leaves from the Cheerful Daisies set. (ink colors for petals, centers, and leaves listed below)  I arranged the daisies and leaves closely together but left a little room to add the chicks which are from Chickie Baby.  I Copic colored the chicks with Y0000, Y00, Y15 - my go to colors for yellow chicks. I stamped the greeting from Cheerful Daisies in dark grey ink towards the top of the card.  I felt this design still needed a little something so I decided to add some butterflies.  I used tiny butterfly images from Spring Showers.  

Altenew Ink colors used for daisies and leaves: Rose Quartz, Puffy Heart, Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, Caramel Toffee, Limeade, Fresh Leaf
