Celebrate You - Celebrate Sunflowers and Seasonal Swirls Dies - #TGIFC336

Hello again! Today's card is one I have entered into the TGIF Challenges #TGIFC336 Colour Challenge this week. The colours in the challenge this week were Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Blackberry Bliss.

Now this week's challenge was a really tricky one for me. As you would know it is Spring in Australia, so the deep and rich colours for this challenge kind of threw me for a loop for a few days and of course I am entering at the last minute for that reason. I used watercolouring as a technique to diffuse the deep colours and create multiple different shades of the Basic Black and Blackberry Bliss.

For this card I used the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp, Sunflowers Dies, Seasonal Swirls Dies and used techniques such as watercolouring, fussy cutting and heat embossing.


- Use a piece of Blackberry Bliss card, cut in half lengthwise and folded. Mat with a piece of Very Vanilla card after splattering with Blackberry Bliss ink and attach using Stampin' Dimensionals.

- Use a piece of Watercolour paper and stamp the small sunflowers with Versamark ink using the Celebrate Sunflowers set. Use a sentiment from the set and stamp using Versamark onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss card. Heat emboss both, then fussy cut both the sentiment (cut off the word Let's) and the sunflowers. Apply Blackberry Bliss to a Clear Block, and mix with a little water. Use a Water PainteR to colour the sunflowers creating lighter and darker areas on the flowers. Do the same  thing with Tuxedo Black and apply to the sunflower leaves and centres of the flowers.

- Die cut some leaves from Basic Black card using the Sunflowers Dies Die cut a wreath from Very Vanilla card using the Seasonal Swirls Dies. Attach the flowers, sentiment, wreath and leaves using Liquid Glue, Glue Dots and Stampin' Dimensionals.

- Use a Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Write Marker and add some dots to the Very Vanilla leaves on the wreath to add some more interest. Add some Matte Black Dots to finish the card.
