Another week already and the theme is yellow over at Twinkle Twinkle Like a Star. Kristin has challenged us to the theme of yellow and as a bonus to use metallic in your card. Metallic to me can mean many things, a metallic paint, metallic embellishment, metallic flowers, or......Staples.
As you can see here I took a piece of corrugated cardboard and applied gesso to it with 2 coats. While the 2nd coat was still wet I added Timberline Green to a corner of my brush and lightly and quickly made a rugged border around the edges. Where the top paper was removed it was a bit tricky but I accomplished my task. I then stamped some sunflowers (thanks for the stamps Mum) onto white card stock coloured them with pencil crayons, then applied one right onto the cardboard and the other 2 were applied using pop dots to raise them off the page for a 3D effect. I also used this cool word flourish stamp( a package of them I recently got at Walmart for a buck) , can't refuse a bargain like that, and stamped the image in Black Soot DI. I then applied my finished top piece to a yellow card with my metallic attachments....Staples.
Thanks for looking and I can't wait for the next colour.
This is a fun and very rewarding challenge, I want to thank Kristin for taking this on and including my artwork. There are some wonderfully talented people out there, go check them out.
