Lawn Fawn - Sunflower and Daisy

I've got two cards to share today. They both use the same supplies, but give two very different looks.

Let's start with the sunflower:

For this card, I first stamped the flowers, leaves and planting pot from Lawn Fawn's Our Friendship Grows stamp set. I colored them in using my Copics, added a few subtle highlights with my white gel pen, then got to work on the background. I got the watercolor look by rubbing distress inks in rows on my craft sheet and spraying them a couple of times with water. I placed a 2" strip of watercolor and pressed it down firmly to create a gradient look. I dried it with my heat tool and attached it to two strips of gray paper from the Let's Polka 6x6 paper pad. After gluing it down on a sunshine notecard, I arranged the flowers and leaves.

And now the daisy:

I followed the same process with the daisy, but I switched the colors around - using a mermaid notecard for the base. It looks much different from the sunflowers, even though the same stamp was used. I experimented a little with the texture on the flower center, and it turned out really cool.

I think this card duo is my favorite set of cards I've made this year. I just love how the colors and textures came out.

  1. I love how you've used the same stamps and same basic design but they looks so different - and still so wonderful!

    1. I've been trying to look at stamps in slightly different ways. It's a fantastic exercise in creativity.

      Thank you for your comment, Kylie! You are too sweet. :)
