Blue Painted Harvest

Hello again and welcome back.  When I saw the Painted Harvest set all I initially saw was yellow sunflowers.  I adore sunflowers in the garden with their tall, strong stems and nodding heads or even the little dwarf teddy bear style ones that sit at the front of the border.  This set is so much more than that though.

This card combines the beauty of the Painted Harvest set with a versatile greeting from the Label Me Pretty set.  I stamped the blooms randomly over the left hand corner of the card.  I always find it tricky to stamp randomly - I usually end up having a row of images!  I wanted to have a mixture of full flowers alongside some partial blooms at the edges of the card.

The flower is made by stamping two different stamps one on top of the other to create texture and depth to the image.  Firstly, I stamped the larger, bigger image in Pool Party ink followed by the second image in Marina Mist.  To line the images up I used the hole in the centre of the flower as a guide, rotating the second stamp over the top until they line up.  To finish off the centres of the flowers are stamped in Sahara Sand ink.

The sentiment is stamped using Marina Mist ink and punched out with a 1 1/2" circle punch which is then layered onto die cut circles.  There is a twist of natural trim ribbon to finish, and not a single yellow sunflower in sight!

Happy crafting,
