Hi everyone! There is a super fun challenge this week for the Make It Monday #205 at Papertrey Ink! It's all about confetti and confetti = happy, so I had to join in!
Confetti Cluster stamping is the technique featured and while I did use the technique, my cards are more single layer and more monochromatic but still gorgeous! I wanted to NOT use a standard shape for my images so I hand drew a sunflower on the card front and filled it in with tiny stamps!
This is the first card I created to really mimic the sunflower and I used a different tiny stamp for each petal. There were pencil lines outlining each petal and I worried it would look like one big blob once they were erased. I was so very pleasantly surprised to get a definite flower and I think this is my favorite card of the two! I loosely threaded some sweet gingham ribbon and added a tag too!
Since I was worried about the flower shape of the first card, I changed up and used two different colors of ink for the second. I also gave it a bright center for a more summery feel. The pretty cluster of embellishments at the top are layered over some clear chevron acetate and this one features a smaller tag!
Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!
