May SOTM–Friendship Bouquet

I created another card using this Month’s stamp of the month!! J
I wanted to create a card with these sunflowers, but I wanted to find an EASY way to color in the flower…so this is what I came up with! J

Here is the card…

Any ideas on how I colored in the flowers?

If you look closely, you’ll see it’s not a “perfect” coloring job.  It looks “shaded”. 

I used Sponge Daubers to color in my flowers!!!

Lightly ink your dauber, and go in small circles to shade in the sunflower image. 

For the leaves….I used the masking technique

First, I stamped a sunflower on my card where I wanted it…and then masked the leaves.

To mask – stamp the sunflower image on scrap paper – cut it out and then place that image over top of the stamped flower already on your card. 

Next, take the leaf stamp and stamp the leaf where you would like it to be on the sunflower. (you will stamp partly on the scrap sunflower). 

Finally, pull away the cut out sunflower image…and TA DA!!!  You have a sunflower that has leaves growing behind it! J

To color in my leaves…I did something different  J   I turned over my actual clear stamp…inked it up and stamped the solid image it created!!!  It’s FUN to turn over your stamps and see what shape they will ink to be!!!
