CC517 & SC526 Sunflower Get Well Soon

Hi Stampers! 

I had a chance to play in my craft room and decided to create a Mixed Media card using Stampin' Blendabilities™, Distress Inks and regular Stampin' Write Markers for the Splitcoaststampers CC517 Color Challenge (Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Old Olive with the dessert option of four layers or more) and the SC526 Sketch (flipped the sketch). 

If you have not already visited the above sites, I hope you will the chance to check out the wonderful Design Team samples as well as the galleries!!

To create this card:

Stamp the main image (Sunflower Collage- non SU!) using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock. 

Color the image using Stampin’ Blendabilities™- Coastal Cabana for the background (Light and Medium), Old Olive for the leaves and Daffodil Delight for the petals (again, Light and Medium). 

Add a few shadows with the Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker and distress the panel using Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Use a Faber-Castell® Black Pitt Pen Marker to re-define the lines on the image and add a few highlights with a Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen Marker.

Trim and mount the image onto a piece of retired Soft Sky Designer Series Paper and distress the edges with Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Using Bermuda Bay Classic Ink, stamp the Ex Libris background stamp onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock.  Distress the edges with the Distressing Tool and mount onto a piece of Soft Suede cardstock (also using the Distressing Tool to distress the edges). 

Using Coastal Cabana Classic Ink, stamp the En Francais background onto a strip of Coastal Cabana cardstock, distress the edges with the Distressing Tool and mount onto a distressed piece of Soft Suede cardstock.  Adhere this strip to the background panel and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Cut a White Tea Lace Paper Doily in half and distress with Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  Mount the doily behind the focal image panel and adhere the focal image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Stamp the sentiment onto Whisper White cardstock, distress with Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink and stamp the Ex Libris background over the image (“huff” to re-moisten the ink before applying to the sentiment).

Cut the banner points using the Hexagon Punch and mount onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Add the Antique Brad and Pearls to finish off the card.

Wow, I have this same stamp and it's so awesome to see your take on it. Normally I used Perfect Pearls on it, but I'm going to try my copics. Thanks for the inspiration! Your card is absolutely stunning!
