Filled With Sunshine

Spring is almost finished, and summer is just about here...so I thought a nice, cheery, quick and simple spring/summer card would be fantastic.  This one features  IMAGINE Crafts® Fireworks!™ Craft Spray in Dandelion and Tangelo, as well as IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink full-size inkpad in Rich Cocoa.

I started by gathering my supplies:
  • IMAGINE Crafts® Fireworks!™ Craft Spray in Dandelion and Tangelo
  • IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink full-size inkpad in Rich Cocoa
  • IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink small-size inkpad in Spanish Moss
  • Sunflower stamp (Stampendous)
  • Thoughtful Wishes stamp set (Stampendous)
  • various Spectrum Noir pens
  • Ultra Smooth White cardstock

I trimmed a large piece of the white cardstock to 5 3/4" inches square.  I place pieces of scratch paper over it, to create diagonal stripes.

I sprayed Fireworks!™ Craft Spray in Dandelion and Tangelo alternately until I was happy with the results (moving the papers as necessary).

I inked up my stamp with Memento™ Dye Ink full-size inkpad in Rich Cocoa and colored it with Spectrum Noir markers:

Petals: OR1, GB5, CR4, CR3
Flower Center: TN4, TN4, TN3, DG2

Then I inked up my clear sentiment using VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink small-size inkpad in Spanish Moss.   I stamped it where desired, than placed the fussy cut sunflower on the panel with dimensional dots.  To finish the card, I added some fabulous strips of bling and then adhered the whole panel to the card base using foam tape to add even more dimension.

Stamps: Sunflower, Thoughtful Wishes (Stampendous)
Card Stock: Ultra Smooth White (Crafter's Companion), Bazzill
Ink: Rich Cocoa (IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink), Spanish Moss (IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaFine™ Archival Pigment Ink), Tangelo, Dandelion (IMAGINE Crafts® Fireworks!™ Craft Spray)
Coloring Medium: Spectrum Noir
Accessories: Bling strips (Eyelet Outlet)
