Welcome back to another Club Scrap Blog Hop and Linky Party. This months kit Sunflowers is so vibrant and cheery. If you haven't already received it be sure to order it now.
Now first things first if you came from Esther's blog then you came from the right place. If you didn't you can start at the beginning with Karen from the Club Scrap blog.
All product is from Club Scrap Sunflower Kit unless otherwise stated.
For my first card I used the patterned paper for the background. The checkered strips and center is from the cut-a-part. I handmade my sunflower using Elizabeth Craft Designs die Garden Notes - Sunflower. I used some pan pastels for some shading. Finished card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 folded.
For my second card I used the 12x12 patterned paper for the base of the card. I used a cut-a-part and matted with plain cardstock. I used the gorgeous green ribbon and snipped the ends. I topped it off with the flower wood button and colored it with Promarkers. Finished card is 6x6 folded.
For my third card I first prepared a piece of watercolor paper (4 1/4x5 1/2) with 2 colors of distress ink using clarity brushes. Distress ink colors are Mustard Seed and Wild Honey. Next I stamped the image from the Sunflowers Jumbo Unmounted Stamps with India Ink on prepared watercolor paper. I then colored the sunflower with a waterbrush & distress inks. Using a paint brush with water I blended the dry application of distress inks on the outside of the image (the border). Once dry I cut the watercolor paper edges to measure 3 1/2x4 3/4. I used a 8 1/2x11 patterned paper for the base. Last I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops for some accents.
And last I wanted to show another card I made using the Sunflower Digital Kit. The digital kit is a great way to play while waiting for the paper kit to arrive. I printed a background pattern and the sunflower image on cardstock. I colored the sunflower with Promarkers. For the shading I used Distress ink with the foam applicator. The green patterned paper is from the Enchanted Forest Remix Collection Kit.
Thank you for stopping by. Now it's time to head on over to Lisa's Blog to continue the Hop.
