My thoughts and ideas for cardmaking and an occasional altered project!
Tuesday, September 7, 2010
Good morning! I have a card to share with you today using a new Crafty Secret's stamp. Sandy (the owner of CS) has come out with some gorgeous new flower images. I love that they are large and take up most of the card! The one I used today is the Sunflower. I colored the image with my Copics.......twice. I cut out the second sunflower and added 3 different Stickles to the center. 3 shades of brown. I used a pin to mix the colors a bit, so the "rings" of color weren't so distinct. The rest of the flower was covered with Crystal Lacquer and set aside to dry. Once dry, I bent the petals up a bit and placed it on a foam circle in the center of the first flower. The frame and tag are cut using my Spellbinder's dies. Rhinestones and scrunchy seam binding were added as finishing touches. I love the look of the Stickles! : )
Off to start my 4 day work week! (......niiiiiiiiiiiice!) I could get used to this!
Have a wonderful Tuesday! Thanks so much for visiting!!!
