Celebrate Sunflowers with As You See It Challenge #255


celebrate sunflowers for aysi #255 1

Wait! What?? It's time again for As You See It Challenges? Impossible! Didn't we just do that last week? I guess not because it's time for the next Colour Challenge and this week we have one that will make you go looking for a pumpkin spice latte and have you pull all your sweaters out of the closet! Check out the Challenge Banner for As You See It Challenge #255 - Autumn Warmth:

Am I right? Aren't these delicious colours?

I decided to do something with sunflowers - still summer, but definitely fall colours, and I wanted to use that older stamp set again, just to remind you of the beautiful sets we have in the Annual Catalogue that have been carried over from the past year or two.

  • To be honest, I had a whole different concept for this card at first, but it just didn't turn out the way it looked in my head, so I had to start again with something a little cleaner and with smaller images.
  • The small sunflower images were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured in with Stampin' Blends Markers in Calypso Coral, Cajun Craze and Mango Melody instead of Crushed Curry. The leaves were watercoloured with a Blender Pen in Garden Green ink.
  • They were die cut with the Sunflowers Dies, along with some grasses in Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze and mounted on a piece of Basic White cardstock that had been stamped with the sentiment and embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.
  • The Cajun Craze card base is layered with a Crushed Curry layer as well.
  • The final touch was some of the *Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots that will be available on Aug. 3 from the July/Dec Mini Catalogue.
*These products are from the 2021 July - December Mini Catalogue and won't be available for sale until August 3, 2021
