sunflowers and sentiments ...

  • LOTV- sunflowers
  • sentimentally yours- elegant milestone birthdays
  • script background stamp (not sure on the brand)
  • daler rowney aquafine smooth water colour cardstock
  • archival 'jet black & coffee' ink pads
  • tim holtz distress ink pads
  • American crafts twine
  • sakura 'clear star' glitter pen

To make this card I cut a piece of card slightly smaller than my card front. I inked the background with yellow and added some brown around the edges. I stamped some script over the piece to create a background paper. I cut a smaller second panel of card and stamped this with my image and sentiment. I then water coloured the image using distress inks. I added glitter to the sentiment and bee wings. I wrapped twine around the edge of the panel and secured it with a knot. I used foam tape to glue my panel to the card front to add dimension.
