Sunflower Hello by Shona

Hi there,

Designer Shona here with you today to share the first of my September Reveal cards. I combined both the Sunflower Cheer Set 916 along with the digi version and then the background is the Stampendous Cling Sunny Sketch 6CR004 stamp.

I began with stamping the background on watercolor paper with the Hybrid Ink Acorn Brown, using the Stamp Platform.

Masking Fluid was applied sporadically to different areas of the image and once dry, the image was sprayed with water using the Light Mist Sprayer and Shimmer Powders were applied.

I used a Water Brush to move the colors around. Solar Flare, Catherine Wheel and Garden Parade were the colors I used.

Cherry bomb mixed with Solar Flare was used for the background.

I printed out the digis, while I was waiting on the background to dry. I printed one 5" x 7" sunflower and then two 4" x 6". These were fussy cut using the 5" mini scissors.

Versamark was applied to all three sunflowers and they were heat embossed with Sparkle. Dimensional Glue was then applied to the center of one of the smaller sunflowers and Sparkling Coffee was added.

The Masking Fluid was then gently rubbed off the background piece.

Yellow and orange Glitter Markers from the Ember Glow pack were applied with a water brush to certain areas of the petals.

Aquaflow watercolors were used to color the bee and the leaves.

Honey Gold Glitter Drops were applied to the wings of the bee.

Caramel Cream Crystal Drops were added to the little circles around the flower on the right.

The background was placed back in the Stamp Platform and was dusted with the anti static bag, before the sentiment was stamped in Versamark and then heat embossed with Timber.

I cut off the stem and leaves of the larger digi and one of the smaller ones. The petals of the flowers were cut with the 5" mini scissors and were curled a little before being attached to the background with Tear-ific Tape and Mounting Tape.

Raffia ribbon was tied around the stem of the flocked flower before it was attached to the panel with Mounting Tape.

A watercolor paper card based was edged with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape and the card front was centered on top, leaving a then edge of adhesive to which Autumn Frost glitter was applied.

Here is a close up of the completed project.
