So on to some crafting fun. First I would like to point out that I am going to be a jerk twice in this post, once because I cannot for the life of me remember where I got the digital image from, I am sure you have seen it around the blog-o-sphere so if anyone knows where please let me know. Second the card I originally saw on one of the many blogs I follow and I cannot for the life of me remember which one. The tutorial for the card though can be found on SCS, here. *edit, Marlene from Disguised as a Grown Up, reminded me (*wink*) that it was her blog and the image was from *wink*wink ink. It was a freebie when I got it, not sure if it is anymore. But as soon as I saw the card I knew I wanted the image, LOVE sunflowers.**
So here is my card.....
Ok so the lighting stinks, it was night time and my room was not lit very well. A few things to add, I LOVE sunflowers! I wish I could make a card everyday with sunflowers. Here is what held me back, I stink at coloring....well that was until yesterday. I have tried Copics, Prismacolor Markers and I did try just regular Prismacolor Pencils. Well my new FAV is Watercolor PrismaColor Pencils and a Blender Pen. I LOVE the way it turns out. So I printed the digi with my INK jet printer which is not ideal for coloring with liquid substance because the INK just bled. So what I did was after I printed the digi, I used my Versamark Marker by Stampin' UP! and I traced over the lines in the picture and then used black embossing powder to give some raised lines. This helped with the bleeding. The pattern paper I used is from Basic Grey, Max and Whiskers. Super cute collection. I was having a hard time finding a pattern paper that would match my sunflower and honestly that paper was the closest I could get. :-( I guess I need to go shopping and get a wider variety of PP. LOL! The buttons are also from Basic Grey, Nook and Pantry collection.
And there you have it! Now I am off to stamp more images to color! YIPPEE!!!
