Sometimes I sit down and create a card with one idea in mind and a specific place for posting, then all sorts of challenges fit the same idea. That happened with this card.
Originally I started creating a card for the Use Your Stash challenge at Splitcoast Stampers that I participate in each month. This month’s theme is to create something that begins with S for September. I decided to use sunflowers. Then I added sunshine with the greeting and the stencil. It is one layer and is CAS, so it worked well with the AAA challenge. The stencil is perfect for the Sisterhood of Crafters challenge as well as the Hero Arts Stay Crafty challenge.
The stamp set used is Newtons Nook’s Sunflower Days. The stencil is from Fun Stampers Journey called Sunrays. I used Lawn Fawn Sunflower ink to blend over the stencil. I colored the sunflowers alcohol ink markers and masked before stenciling. I masked the greeting also.
It has been a long time since I have made a one-layer card and especially one that is Clean and Simple. It was fun to create.
