Hello. Welcome. The post man came a few hours ago bringing happy mail. I think this must be a record for me. Happy mail to blog post in only a few hours. The mail in question was Poppystamps Bountiful Sunflower die which I was lucky enough to win in their recent blog hop. It spurred me along to finish a very simple project for the Scor-Pal challenge Monochromatic
I used my Scor-pal to score horizontal and vertical lines on my card. I've seen this done but didn't realise how quickly, easily and effectively it transforms a flat card into something so much more interesting. I used Dried Marigold Distress Ink pad to highlight the lines. The over spill is a pleasing side effect. Then I cut the Poppystamp Bountiful Sunflower from some orange patterned paper and backed it with orange card. I had to fussy cut the back piece because I don't have the matching die. Will have to do something about that! This is definitely going to be a popular cut. I also extended the stem slightly to take it off the card. The sentiment is a stamp from PaperArtsy SIDD5 set which I stamped in Dried Marigold and then again in Black Archival.
