Absolutely Wonderful Sunflower

Hi Clever Dexter crafties! It's Deidre sharing today's card inspiration. We're launching into February with a theme I love: FAVORITE TECHNIQUE.

Once again, our super sweet sponsor, Alex Syberia Design, has sent some absolutely awesome digital stamps for us to use month as inspiration. I couldn't pass up this giant sunflower called Hello Summer...it's my actual favorite flower IRL (in real life)  :) This card has a combination of two techniques I love, I hope that's not cheating lol. First: making my own backgrounds using stencils, spray inks, paints...pretty much all mediums. I used two stencils, a few red, yellow, and orange spray inks, a mica powder, and ink blending to create the brick wall background and to color the sunflower.

Second: layering for dimension. This sunflower has all of these luscious petals that I knew would be great to fussy cut some out, pop up the layer with foam adhesive, and layer a duplicate panel behind it.

You can pop over to my blog to see all of my supplies and colors too,
