My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Sunflower Fence and Mr. Straw

Good Morning!

I’m so delighted to be able to share this card with you today. I was the top pick for my FSS card using Pumpkins and sunflowers at the Delightful Challenges last Wednesday. That win entitled me to be the Guest Designer this week at Digital Designs by Louby Loo. What an honor.

My card was inspired by a sketch at Card Positioning Systems and two Digi Images from Digital Delights. The first image is called Sunflower Background and the other is Mr. Straw. I printed the sunflower background twice, then resized smaller and printed that twice, then Mr. Straw once. Colored them all with Copic Markers, cut out and layered with foam tape. I used white liquid appliqué on the clouds and heated to puff them.

The word Hello is a clear stamp from Close to my Heart. It was stamped with New England Ivy ink then heat embossed with Clear Detail EP. The papers are from a newly released paper pack called Olivia, from CTMH.

The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.

Other challenge Blogs this card was made for:
A crafty Little Place - Brown, Green & Orange
Creative Card Crew - Fall
Everybody Art - Autumn
Paper Playtime - Autumn
Creative Craft World - Fall
