Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Yikes … sorry for the late post but I promised I would share another Celebrate Sunflowers with you, and I got a cutie for you today! Using some of the same techniques as yesterday and then “WOW” … I used the large sunflower colored with the Stampin’ Blends.
Just like yesterday, I stamped the background but instead of covering the entire card, I just edged the sides with the little sunflowers. Then I used a Sponge Dauber to add a touch of ink to the centers of the little flowers, and then around the outsides of the flower … this technique does 2 things; it highlights the small sunflowers, and then leaves the center bright and open which then highlights the large sunflower as well.
The next step is to stamp the large Sunflower image … I used the Black Tuxedo Momento ink (it’s the best when coloring with Stampin’ Blends) I”m actually going to die cut “after” coloring.
I used the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight and the Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to color my sunflower. I start with the Light Daffodil Delight, the color the lines with the Dark Daffodil Delight and then used the light to blend the two colors. The Light Soft Suede was used mostly in the center and then a little in the base of the petals to create real depth.
I stamped my greeting onto a 3/4″ piece of Very Vanilla using the Momento Ink and then I cut it out to create an interesting twist to the card… I think it highlights the pretty “script”. It is then placed over the Bumble Bee Ribbon.
JOIN ME … tomorrow as I do a “FACEBOOK LIVE” to demonstrate how I use my Stampin’ Blends for coloring. I will be on my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape Facebook page … meet me at 6pm/central time!
