February Corrosive Challenge Team Card

Pretty Possum’s Sunflower

Hello Fans, today I bring you all this month’s Corrosive Challenge Design Team card. This image by Heather Valetin is fantastic and can be found on her online shop by click here or the link below. 

 To start this card off I printed two of the same images on Canson mixed media paper I had cut down to 8.5×11” to fit in my printer. Once these we printed, I colored one full image and just the large sunflower head from the second image with Karin water color pens.  

I let my colored images dry overnight before I processed to turn it into a card. This allowed the water color ink to dry. Once my image was dry, I added a little sparkle to the sunflower with my Gelly Roll glitter pen. I also cut out the large sunflower head and traced the edges with a yellow Copic marker to get rid of any white showing.

Next I cut down a bright green piece of card stock to 4.25×5.5”to use as my base layer. Using the Crackle designed embossing folder made by Darci I embossed my green base layer. To help the crackle embossing stick pop better I swiped over the top of this layer lightly with distressed ink -Twisted Citron, by Tim Holtz.

To assemble my card, I started by gluing the green layer to a heavy stock card base that is cut to 4.25×5.5”. I cut down my image to 3.75×5” and glue it down. To give the card some dimension I used pop dots and adhered the large sunflower head to over the top of the large sunflower on the card.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you come back soon to see more creations. 

PS. I’m always up for a card making challenge, so if you have any suggestion please send them my way. It helps motivate me to create.
