Paper craft project no. 450: Sunny days ahead



Popping by with a card I made for the current challenge at Time Out. There is still a week left to join in the Inspired by Words challenge. The team took inspiration from this quote: Wherever you go, no matter the weather, always bring your own sunshine (Anthony J. D'Angelo)

I was in the mood for some watercoloring and I wanted a large image to color so I enlarged one of the framed floral images I have originally illustrated. It's an actual stamp, Framed Zinnia, that measures 2" by 3" but I enlarged it to 3" by 4.5" then printed it on 110 lb cardstock. I colored it with a combination of Zig Clean Color markers, Akashiya Sai Japanese watercolor brush markers, and Inktense pencils. I layered it over a stitched rectangle panel (CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangles). I stamped the banner and sentiment (from Bloom Happy, a soon-to-be-released set) and then die-cut it using the coordinating CUTplorations die. I'd like to report that this card did not give me a headache ;o) I think I am starting to warm up to creating cards that have real layers, although one layers are still my first love.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)

  4. WOW ... amazing colouring of these gorgeous flowers Shery. You have really brought them to live with the shading ... they look 3-D. Love the script background and the soft sponging of linen to compliment the dark pink blooms. I'm so glad this didn't give you a headache!! :) Awesome job with this layered beauty.
