Sunflowers - Color Dare #207

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #207: Join us in this week’s challenge combining Canary, Saffron, White Daisy and Gold (all and only)...looking forward to seeing your inspirations for this color challenge. We encourage you to use CTMH products; however you may use any products to participate using closest to colors...and still join in the fun. You have until Thursday, August 25 to enter your project.  

My Color Challenge was combined with the MoJo Monday Sketch Challenge #461 with no sentiment, a future any occasion card. Hop on by these challenges to see the DT's inspiration and many entrant projects.  

Made a personalized background using the "Sunflower" embossment folder on wax paper, ironed wax-paper image on white cardstock and then sponged saffron and canary inks on image.   

Focal Point is a die-cut doily from Cricut Design Space with a small floral bouquet of sunflowers adding "clear" Wink of Stella for a little glitter and gems in the center of each flower.  Decorated the inside of the card with more flowers and a  doily.  


EXCELLENT TUTORIAL:  I had done a previous card with this technique, but since there were questions on the Facebook I took time to look through You Tube and found a very nice tutorial Crafting My Style with Sue Wilson - Embossed Wax Paper Resist Technique for Creative Expressions CLICK HERE. I did not use glossy paper and I didn't re-emboss, but it does make a more stunning card. I'll try that next time because I like this technique.    

Also submitted to the following challenges:  
HLS August Anything Goes
The Outlawz Sunday CAS "Embossing" 

As You Like It "Favorite Flowers" - many memories as a kid back East...we would see fields of Sunflowers, get out of our car, run through the aisles of these gigantic flowers....amazed on how tall they were.

Oh, I like this! When I initially saw the colours, I wasn't sure about the combination but the card you created is gorgeous. The white doily sets off all the yellow tones very nicely and also brings out the background design. Gorgeous!

Beautiful card, Sue! The background is gorgeous and really is perfect for your doily and flowers. Wonderful job!

Cat Nowak said...
