Flowers and Sunshine Card
Day twenty eight of the 30 day coloring challenge and I completely changed gears. I just got some new stamps and I had to use them, right. now. today. This card ended up alot of work. It has so many errors. Where to start. First off being a horse person I have spent countless hours whacking down thistles in the pasture to save me spending hours getting burrs out of manes and tails. I did not realize what flower it was until I started sponging on the Distress Inks. As it started to pop out at me I went great, I picked a horrid weed for my Flower sentiment. Big mistake number two is that I wasn't looking at the shadows on the water droplets. Bleh, the shadows FACE the sunny side.
I thought, ok I will keep at this for "practice". I added some new stencils for all three sections. I then added real water droplets and spray to add more texture to the background. I added two metallic marks, the swirly one on the left shows up in the image. Finally I spent forever and a day doodling the water droplets to make them have the shadow on the shady side. I added shadows for the lettering in a color matching its background. Finally I broke out the white gel pen. I know this has lots of subject matter mistakes but I know it will still be appreciated by the lucky recipient.
