CELEBRATE SUNFLOWERS stamp set is part of the FLOWERS for EVERY SEASON SUITE on page 10 in Stampin' Up!'s new annual catalog. We used this stamp set yesterday in our Fabulous Tuesday Stamp Clubs. I will post pictures of that card in the future but I wanted to talk about a technique that I used for this sunflower card ~ PLASTIC WRAP SMOOSH TECHNIQUE ~
I used about a 10" square of Saran Wrap and added drops of Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie ink refill to the surface of the wrap.
Then I crumbled up the plastic wrap in a ball and opened it back up. I spritzed the ink with water.
Lastly I carefully laid Whisper White cardstock over the top ~ the size was 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" ~ and pressed the cardstock into the wet ink. Then remove the cardstock and let it dry. The results will vary ~
I cut the sunflower shape out of the paper and layered the detailed die cut sunflower over the top. It is Early Espresso cardstock. It is an interesting technique and one you could try with any color combination. It worked well with the celebrate sunflower bundle. Tomorrow I will post more sunflower cards from a recent swap with some fabulous demonstrator friends. You will find some great ideas for this bundle. If you have time to try this technique, email me the results. I would love to see your creation!
