When I first saw this daffodil image I was thrilled and the excitement has not faded one bit.  This is such a gorgeous image, I had to showcase it by itself.  I recently read a brief article on mixing colors.  I used the author's idea about using a gallon, a pint and an ounce.  My husband came upstairs to my craft room as I was working on this card with a slice of homemade Roasted Garlic Bread.  When I told my husband about the gallon-pint-ounce theory, he thought I was nuts.  He said, "Paint?  But didn't you color that the other night?".    I replied, "Yes, dear and I would love to have another slice of that bread.  Some things you can only tell your crafty friends!!!  Thanks for listening gals! 

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to continue on to Tangii.  She'll have something fabulous for your viewing pleasure!

I love how you outlined the daffodil with the open space for the "daffodil"; that was very creative. Your coloring is spot on!
