I'm back, and for a second week in a row, I'm participating in the CAS-ual Fridays challenge. This week's challenge (CFC17) is to use a sticker. Ages ago, I bought a sheet of Mrs. Grossman's stickers. I thought they were great, as they had all different styles of "Happy Birthday" sentiments. I just never remember to use them. So I broke them out for this card:
The flowers are coloured with a combination of Sharpies and Prismacolor pencils. This is something I will do again -- a quick all over-colour with a Sharpie, then highlight and shade with the pencils. The centres are black diamond Stickles. The top yellow flower is adhered directly to the background, the second is popped up, and then the orange flower is popped up on a double layer of dimensionals. The orange layer is embossed with the folder that comes with the Cuttlebug, which may be called Tiny Flowers. Or not. Both the orange and dark brown layers are -- wait for it -- paint chips! I love paint chips! But again, I rarely remember to use them. It worked out perfectly for this card, since I don't buy a lot of orange cardstock. The sentiment is on yellow vellum, sandwiched between an epoxy sticker (another gift from Angela!) and a glue dot for a little extra "lift". Much as I love summer, this card does seem to say autumn, doesn't it? :P
Supplies: cream cardstock, orange & brown paint chips, yellow vellum, Stampin' Up Fifth Avenue Floral stamp, Versafine onyx black ink, clear embossing powder, Sharpies, Prismacolor pencils, Mrs. Grossman happy birthday sticker, epoxy sticker, dimensionals, Fiskars glue dot.
