613 Avenue Create-Anything Goes-Option Use Your Stash

Good morning, Crafty Friends!  Today's challenge at 613 Avenue Create has the option of Use Your Stash. Our sponsor is Rick St. Dennis.  I've used the Daffodil Single Image digi. I have need for lots of birthday cards in the upcoming months, so I made a birthday card.


I colored the digi using colored pencils and gamsol.  I'm getting to like this.  I die cut the image uncolored, dusting the cut with chalk before removing the image from the die.  Then I colored another copy of the image, fussy cut it, glued down the stem and popped up the flower.  The die cut is popped up also. I distressed the edges of the flower, the die, the DP and the card with ink. The ribbon  (American Crafts) looks a lot lighter than the flower in this picture, but they actually match nicely.  The daffodil has a light coating of clear Wink of Stella, and I added some rhinestones from Recollections. The sentiment and DP are CTMH.  The cardstock is K & Company.  Absolutely everything is from my stash!!

I'm entering these challenges:  Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge -  always Anything Goes but must cover your card blank with patterned paper; The Card Concept - Floral (my style is Clean and Layered); Natalie and Amy's Challenge #18 - Flowers.

  4. Sheila, this is a fantastic coloring with the gamsol on the beautiful floral. Your fussy cutting must have been a bit tedious with some of the tiny bits, and you did it very nicely. Happy to see that you entered at Craftyhazelnuts and was very happy myself to enjoy it this evening. Hope all is well on your end of the world! We are expecting rain, cooler temps. Today was mid 70's, and lovely. Aired out the house a little. Have a wonderful week. Hugs & TFS
