Now for my craft!
 1. To make the card above I drew my daisy design onto scratch paper and them made copies of it on a printer.
2. Next I added some double stick tape to a piece of card stock and added my daisy print.
 I did this because the printer paper was too thin for step 4. Now if you have a choice daisy or flower stamp, you can just stamp it directly to the white card stock.
3. From here I added some more double stick tape. The wider the tape, the better.
 Peel off the tape backing before step 4.
 4. & 5.  Place your  piece on a paper plate and pour a little bit of super fine clear glitter on top. Rub it around with your finger, making sure to cover all of the image. Pour excess glitter back into the container.

 6.  Using your favorite alcohol based markers, (I use spectrum Noir) color the center of the flower completely with a bright yellow and then in the center with shades of darker yellow/orange.

7.  When you have finished coloring in your flower, take a fine tip permanent black pen and touch up the outline of the image. Be careful not to push to hard or you'll pull up the glitter from the sticky tape.

 When you have finished, carefully cut out your design with non-stick precision scissors, then glue to your card front and embellish as desired.

 Robins Nest materials used:
Teal Classic Glitter, Robins Egg Classic Glitter,  Daffodil Yellow Dew Drops.
