Gerber Daisy Tutorial:
Here is the real deal "Gerber Daisy" by Fancy Pants:
I thought this paper could be re-created by a repetitive stamped image. This was not hard to do, but was time consuming. For my example, I used a 4" X 4" piece of paper, and it went very quickly. On the sheet in my kit, I used two different flower stamps, which made things even trickier. For simplicity, I used just one flower stamp in my instructions.
You will need card stock, or other paper to stamp on, a small flower stamp, acrylic block, black archival ink pad, ink pens to color in your flowers (if desired), and a white Uniball Signo (or similar) pen to outline your flowers.
Step 1: Begin stamping your flower image in the middle of your page, but not dead center. The idea is that you want to stamp the image as randomly as possible. I've heard that if you group your stamped images in groups of three, you can avoid an obvious pattern. Remember to turn your paper and stamp to avoid the image always going the same direction. Continue stamping until you cover the entire page. If your image is light in one area, you can color over it with pen, but it probably will not show after you color the image in. Don't worry too much if you leave a small gap, or your flowers run into each other in spots. You really will not notice it later. Don't forget to have some of your flowers run off the page, for a natural look.
Step 2: Color your flowers in, if desired. I chose to color my flowers brown, because I have other browns in my kit I wanted to match. If your stamp is solid, you can skip this step. I also colored the center yellow (on the blue paper in my example, the yellow looks more green). Allow the ink to dry before going to the next step.
