Happy!

After uploading my other 2 Serene Sunflower cards, I was inspired to dig the set out again and see what I could create!

This first one shows how the set can be used in a NON sunflower way! Coneflowers! I used Regal Rose and Chocolate Chip, with the flowers stamped on Naturals Ivory. The Cheesecloth background, Tag Corner punch, Chocolate & Rose grosgrain. Also the Happy Everything set for the verse! The Cheesecloth background and the Happy Everything have been hanging around here for a while, and not seeing ink! It was past due time to break them out!!!


This one seems more Fall-ish, than Spring, but that's OK. I've seen flowers that look like this, but couldn't tell you what they are! The technique here is Rock-N-Roll! Ink the Flower in Summer Sun, then rock the edges of the stamp on the Really Rust pad. Don't press it flat onto the pad, but tip it round the edge onto the pad. You'll get a different look every time! I also did the center that way. Natural Ivory CS again. and the Happy Everything set again, this time I did Happy Days though. For accent, I pulled out my Tool Kit and used my mat guide and needle to poke corner holes.
