This week has been a busy week organizing my craft/stamping area but I have managed to tale a bit of time to create a few cards :-)
I wanted to participate in the Power Poppy Power & Spark Challenge “The June Bug” along with The Flower Challenge #9 “Anything Goes” Challenge and the My Time To Craft “Summertime” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the challenge blogs yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Using a photo editing software import the Power Poppy digital images, Pure Prairie Bouquet and Roses and Chamomile (I used the retired My Digital Studio™ from Stampin’ Up! but you could use Microsoft Word or other software). Enlarge the Pure Prairie image to fit a 4” x 5 ¼” panel and add the sentiment (enlarged a bit as well) onto a different part of the layout, print out onto a piece of 8 ½” x 11” Whisper White cardstock.
2). Die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle die, water color the image using an AquaPainter™ and watercolor pencils, graphite pencil and distress inks.
3). Mount the panel onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim close to the edge and adhere to the white card base.
4). Trim the sentiment, add the flag points using a hexagon punch, mount onto Basic Black cardstock and create the points again with the punch. Mount the sentiment onto the card front with dimensional foam.
5). Use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the petals and the butterfly.
6). Add white highlights to the flowers using an extra fine white paint pen to finish off the card.
