Actually it's sunflowers over my neighbor's fence 😀
When I look across the street every morning, this is the sunny view with which I am greeted. It is my inspiration for this card.
My neighbor started these sunflower plants from seeds. She said she'll help me next year. I'm afraid my green thumb may only work on paper.
I started by stamping the Penny Black flowers on watercolor paper. I used distress inks to watercolor them. Then fussy-cut them out, and popped them up.
To create the fence I used a wood plank background stamp by My Favorite Things. I stamped and clear embossed it with Morning Mist by Versafine Clair. Then I "smooshed" it with Weathered Wood and Tea Dye distress inks. I cut it into thin strips for the fence boards, then cut in 1/2, then cut the tips on each board. I inked the edges in Weatherd Wood.
The flower was popped up, and I placed the fence boards over the flower. A die cut sentiment from PhotoPlay and done.
I'm putting this in the following challenges:
- Penny Black. *Say it with Flowers*
- Double D Challenge - The Theme is Sunflowers
- Double Trouble This card will go to my neighbor. I think it will brighten her day. So I'm putting it in theThing 1: Trouble Maker says, "You make me happy when skies are grey. Thing 3: Twisted Sister says, "Let's start with using any shade of grey and then brighten the day with your choice of TWO additional colors. And Thing 2: Double Dare says, "If you have taken on Twisted Sister's color palette above, it also matches the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #407.
- Color My Heart Use Gray and 2 other colors of your choice. The fence is shades of grey and the other 2 colors are green and yellow. The white is a freebie.
As always, thank you for stopping by and taking a look.
Stay safe and stay well.
