Just A Note {Scrapy Land Challenge #23}

Today is the start of the newest Scrapy Land Challenge #23.  The theme for this challenge is Anything Goes using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.  You have until Aug 16th to upload your project and the winner will get to go shopping at Scrapy Land with a $15 gift certificate.

Although this is a pretty simple card, I used a lot of different products on it.  To start off, the dies used were

Sue Wilson Designs: Expressions - Just A Note
Sue Wilson Designs: Finishing Touches - Delicate Fronds
Heartfelt Creations: Blazing Poppy

(If the items aren't showing up at the moment, they may be out of stock.  So check back often.)

I started off by stamping the Heartfelt Creations Blazing Poppy Petals rubber stamp onto white cardstock and coloring with my Copic markers.  Then I die cut them using the coordinating Heartfelt Creations die.  Once everything was die cut (you'll need to die cut two sets to create layered petals), the petals were formed and glued into shape.  As you can see in the photos below, this flower definitely has some height to it.  I also added a few drops of Glossy Accents here and there on the petals to create dew drops.

I used the Sue Wilson Delicate Fronds for my foliage behind the flower blossom.  The sentiment, which was die cut from Sticker Paper, was covered with Black Ice glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

The background mat was created by using Ken Oliver's Color Bursts on watercolor paper and letting it do whatever it wants :-).  This is such a fun product to use and I know you'll be seeing more of it here (and probably everywhere else too :-).)

To finish off this 6" x 6" card, I used Heartfelt Creations Blazing Poppy Paper Collections papers and a strip of lace.
