Hi everyone. Here's my Design Team card for the latest challenge at Addicted to CAS. I love sunflowers ... and had so much fun making this card. I used a sweet digital image from our sponsor, Bugaboo ... and used the marker layering technique.
This challenge is being run by the wonderfully, talented Caz (Cazro's Crafty Corner) ... and here's the awesome code word she chose ...
Stamps: Sunflowers Vase (Bugaboo); Be Happy Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper: White, watercolor; Hello Sunshine DP (Bo Bunny)
Ink: Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard, Soft Suede (SU!)
Accessories & Tools: blender pen, 1/4" Daffodil Delight grosgrain ribbon, glue, and adhesives
The original digital image from Bugaboo is two sunflowers in the vase. I wanted to have a larger bouquet, so printed the image twice, used the marker layer to color the sunflowers, fussy cut them and then layered them on top of each other so that there are four in the bouquet. I'm really happy with how it turned out. And, the great thing about digital images, is that I printed the sunflowers again a third time onto watercolor paper, but smaller in size and added them to the inside of the card.
The vase is paper pieced using one of my favorites papers from Bo Bunny, called Hello Sunshine. A knotted ribbon and the card was done. So fun ... and easy, peasy! :)
