Hello friends!! It is a gloomy Sunday here in my part of the world... rain, rain and rain! Oh well... just makes for a nice day to stay inside and do some crafting, right? Have a somber little card that I made using this week's Dynamic Duos combo of kraft and black. The layout is based on the current MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch.
On Friday I received some happy mail in the form of new stamps from MFT. One of the sets was the MFT/LJD Splendid Sunflowers so I just had to get it inky. The Dynamic Duos combo presented a bit of a challenge, but I think the card turned out rather nice. I stamped the sunflower using SU! kraft ink and then added the center using Memento Tuxedo Black. I trimmed out the flower since I wasn't able to buy the matching dies (yet!) and then attached a kraft button using some black hemp twine. The black panel was die cut using the MFT Die-namics Dispersed Dots die and adhered to the cream cardstock. A piece of PTI gingham kraft patterned paper was cut to fit the cream panel and adhered. I die cut a fishtail banner using a MFT Jumbo Fishtail Flag Die-namics die from cream corrugated paper and adhered that to the gingham paper. The "hi" was die cut from black cardstock using the MFT Hi-Rise alpha dies and adhered to the fishtail flag. Finished everything up by attaching the sunflower with foam dimensionals and then the entire piece to the card base. There you have it... a somber sunflower!
Thanks for stopping by...
