We have a fun sketch challenge for you today over on Create with Connie and Mary..super simple! Come play along!
I've only played around with the fringe scissors a couple times. I decided this sketch would be perfect to make a flower. The challenge is keeping the flower "stem" low enough so that it looks good on the front of a card.
I've also been wanting to learn how to do the Sunburst Technique with Designer Paper. It was easier than I thought it would be! I used the soft colors in Watercolor Wonder for mine and made the points show under the flower where I wanted the focus to be.
- The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock, folded in half.
- I stamped the bottom of the front with the little line of flowers from You're Lovely SAB, then added tiny pearls in each center.
- I started the Sunburst Technique with a 4 1/4 x 3 3/4 piece of scrap cardstock, then cut my diagonal pieces to fit across it.
- Across the top of the Sunburst piece, I stamped the greeting from Sweet Essentials with Gumball Green ink on 1/2 strip Whisper White.
- The fringe flower was made with a 2 x 10 piece of DSP, folded in half lengthwise and adhered, then added Sticky Strip across one end and fringed the bottom portion. I rolled it up and then flattened it out, leaving the loops in the flower "petals" as much as possible. I added two Gumball Green bird wing leaves under the flower.
- In the center, I placed a green Glimmer Brad with Mini Glue Dots (it doesn't fit all the way thru).
- It was placed on the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
