I wanted to share this picture of a 'sunflower' that popped up in our garden. Now many of you know how much we love birds, so I think the sunflower sprouted from some of the sunflower seeds the birds drop from the feeders. We had a total of 6 sunflowers grow this year, 4 were fairly small but we had two full size and this is one of them.
Now for my card, actually I have 2 versions of it. With the large Thank you card order I spent some time on Pinterest looking for ideas. I came across PTI Make it Monday video which shared the making of a card, which I have done 2 of. I changed the sentiment,colours and changed up the die cut base plate so they weren't the same. I did do a Thank you one as well but never took a picture. I did it in the green/blue tones using the design of the 2nd card.
These were both so easy and fun to do. I used water colour paper measuring 5.5 x 4.25 then coloured various Zig clean colour markers across the paper on a diagonal. Then I took a wet paint brush and started to blend the colours. Once dry ( I used a heat gun to speed up the process) I used a PTI base plate in the two different designs above and cut it out. Because the water colour paper is a bit heavier I was lucky that all the pieces remained in the die cut. I added some adhesive to the back of each piece, then layered a piece of white card stock onto the die cut. Turned over the die cut face up and removed the negative piece.
I then cut a couple of different coloured tags and stamped the sentiment. Added some fun foam to the back of each then adhered to the front of the card. I attached the die cut piece to the front of a top folded card, then added sequins and enamel dots to finish off.
Well that's it for me for today. Enjoy your day.
