Sunflower

Hello Spring! Bring on the sunshine!!

Main die is ‘Bountiful Sunflower’ by Memory Box; ‘Enjoy’ by Cheery Lynn Designs. ‘Bee’ stamp is by Stampin’ Up and ‘Script Corner’ by Stamp-it.

   

After cutting out the sunflower in white card, I sponged Distress inks (Spiced Marmalade, Brushed Corduroy and Peeled Paint) over to colour. I added the little pieces of the petals back into the framework and coloured to match.

I placed dots of glue into the holes of the sunflower head, then poured Ultra Fine Black Flowersoft over. Push gently into the glue with fingertips. Shake off excess back into pot.

I cut out a 2nd flower and sponged to match original. I then cut the flower head and petals out separately. The flower head I sponged a darker brown along top edge, the petals I sprayed with ‘Sunflower Sparkle’ Perfect Pearl Mist and bent the petals upwards.

I glued the flower head into place, then did the same with the petals, offsetting them slightly. I also glued the second stem and extra leaves over original, gluing down stem only so leaves lifted.

I sprayed Distress inks onto a Teflon mat then ran Unryshi paper through, scrunching it up a bit, then spread out to dry. When dry, glue onto backing card with Matt glue, wrinkling as you go to create texture. Use the Matt glue on top also to seal any folds or wrinkles into place. Set aside to dry. When dry, cut card to size and sponge edges with sepia ink.

Cut wording out of gold foilboard and glue into place. Stamp bee in black at top right. Stamp bee a 2nd time onto scrap card, colour in and cut out body only. Magic Mount bee body over original. Glossy Accent top wings. Set aside to dry. When wings are dry, place dot of glue to bee’s head and cover with Black Flowersoft. Set aside to dry.

When dry, add corner mattings of black card and glue onto background. Attach finished card front to folded backing  card of Mustard colour.
