We have a topsy-turvy challenge at Flourishes l.c. this week! Any type of card was fair game as long as we used atypical colours for the image or theme.
I Googled it… there are sunflowers in just about every shade of yellow, orange, rust, burgundy and even a few with bits of pink! But there are absolutely no blue sunflowers! And I added a yellow center instead of a brown one. The image was coloured with Copic markers but the background was sponged with three shades of Distress ink. I allowed the ink to smudge and applied it unevenly so it better matched the rustic, distressed patterned papers.
I added some calligraphy to this card. The fig 2 was supposed to resemble a botanical illustration. Sadly too much ink came off the pen and the result is less than stellar. And of course I did it at the very end after everything else was done. UGH! But I like how the Miss You on the tag turned out! You can’t see it here but the shading on the center of the sunflower was done with a Spica glitter pen. I added it in tiny dots like pointillism. I just realized now that I see the enlarged image that I missed adding the dots to the little flower! I’ll go back and fix it.
Please visit the entire design team to see how they interpreted this fun challenge!
