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.
