Sunflower

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I inked through one of the elements in the Decorative Elements Mask in each corner onto a piece of Coconut White Card using Butterscotch Adirondack Dye Ink and a piece of Cut n Dry Foam. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Irish Clubs Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then inked around the edges with Butterscotch Ink. I wrapped a piece of White Crochet Ribbon around the centre.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Sunflowers Vintage Labels Five Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I stamped the sunflower wording in the same way beneath the flower. I cut out using Spellbinders A2 Devine Eleoquence Die Set and inked through the die with Butterscotch Ink. I coloured in using Pesto, Caramel and Butterscotch Adirondack Dye Inks. I stamped the sunflower a second time, cut out just the flower head, coloured in the same way as before and added to the full image using 3d Foam.

I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon and added a Vintage Bronze Button.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cosmic Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.
