For some reason THIS card got too MUCH light! Sheesh! I can't win for losing on this picture taking thing. It may explain why scrapbooking can be intimidating to me, right?
This card uses a Crumb Cake base, with Chocolate Chip mat and Really Rust background. A slip of designer paper has the greeting from Stem Sayings (#115078) on it in ch chip ink. The stamp set is A Flower for All Seasons (#111592) and will be in the new catalog. I used Watercolor Paper and stamped the image in Black StazOn ink. Then I outlined it with Stampin' Write markers and bled the ink with my aqua painter. The result has a bit of nice shading.
The sunflower is a combination of two Big Shot dies: the chocolate center is Flower Burst embosslit (#114515) and the Summer Sun portion of the flower is the Flowers Daisy #2 die (#114520). I sponged some chocolate chip ink onto the edges of the flower petals with a sponge dauber (#102892) so that I had more control over the color distribution. The leaves are the Little Leaves sizzlit die (#114511).
Have a wonderful day!
Much love and joy,
