Hello again , thanks for popping by to see my latest make .With all the lovely sunshine we had the other week I found myself making a sunny card (well for me anyway) using Paper Artsy JOFY stampsets n stencil , some texture stamps, distress n Archival inks n distress stain sprays.
Using Mustard Seed Distress Ink I inked a background panel n spritz with water mainly around the edges of the panel dabbing the spritzed areas with kitchen roll so as to create much lighter, even white patches . Once dry, I stencilled randomly using Paper Artsy dotty stencil (PA001) n Wild Honey DI , stamped using my old fave script stamp n cornflower blue Archival ink n a criss cross line stamp in dusty concord ,finally spritzing with Distress stain sprays (Wild honey, Mustard Seed n a touch of Rusty Hinge)
I created a border of grass using Olive Archival ink n a grass line stamp from Jofy stampset (JOFY11)
I used Jofy stampset no 10 for the flowers n watercoloured them using distress inks ( salty Ocean , Crushed Olive, Dusty Concord n Broken China. Again the flowers were fussy cut ready for assembling later.
N thats just what happened next - the flowers were manipulated slightly to create some dimension then arranged n adhered in place with dimensional glue .The same with the grass border .
The final touches were the sentiment using the word stamps on Jofy stampset no 11, an inner circle added to the main flower covered with glossy accents n some highlighter n shadow pen work.
Unfortunately the photos, despite numerous takes n retakes don't portray the true 'brightness' of the card which is a shame because it really does have a 'Cheery Sunshiney' feel to it !
I would like to enter this into the following challenges :
