While in the supermarket, I always glance at the magazine display to see if there is anything that I fancy getting. Issue 148 of the Papercraft Essentials magazine appealed due to the sunflowers. The free gift contained a set of really versatile stamps and an embossing folder with a nice repeat pattern on it.
I quickly got faffing with card, stamps and inks and created these two cards and a tag. my For the first card, I used my watercolour pencils to colour the stamped sunflower image. Mounted it in black and a sunny yellow. I used the free embossing folder for the background. It was a little too small, so I was able to align the design and emboss the other half of the background.
For the second card (below),I used a sheet of patterned paper for the background. Cut a piece of sacking and frayed the edges. Then stuck the stamped image on.
I used a Panpastel background for this tag. Stamped the verse and then stamped the flowers around the verse.
