H2H - Sunflower Sunshine


Welcome to this week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart!

The theme this week is "WOOD You Rather..." - the focus being on projects with a wood focus. 

I chose to use the new Woodgrain paper pack as the background paper for my project. I stamped a large background stamp with Versamark ink and then embossed the image in white. I had an unusually hard time with this - this card represents attempt #6! However, with all the damaged attempts, I did have one piece that I used to cut away the inside and I used that base to outline another piece to fussy cut to fit in the centre of the card. 

In that centre section, I stamped and then masked two flowers to stamp the final flower and the leaves. They were coloured using the Tri-Blend markers and then the flowers were brushed with the Gold Shimmer Brush. The sentiment was stamped with Espresso ink and the inside section was outlined using a thin brown marker. That piece was adhered on craft foam to raise it and the Sundance cardstock was also mounted on craft foam. 

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us how you interpret the "WOOD you Rather" challenge.

Alyson, this card is so gorgeous!! I love the white embossing on the woodgrain! This stamp set had not really been on my wish list, but I may have to reconsider.

Oooh, so pretty, Alyson! Your intricate white embossing is gorgeous against the woodgrain paper! The sunflowers are so pretty - I'm seeing a lot of them around our neighbourhood and we are wishing we would have planted some. Love the sparkle you added!
