Sunflower Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Sunflower Blog Hop. Join us on the hop to see what this talented team has created using this beautiful collection.  If you've arrived here from the very talented Tina's blog you're in the right spot. If not, make sure you start at the beginning to see what Karen has created for you.

I drive by fields of beautiful sunflowers on my way to work and admire their bold beauty. However, I do wish the blooms would last longer. I was excited to see that Sunflowers was this month's collection. While doing a search on Pinterest for sunflower ideas I came across many projects with bold beautiful flowers on a darker background using various markers. I love the look but I don't want to invest in another art medium. Which made me go way back into the memory banks of my mind to recall a retreat workshop. Don't know what year it was but it was when we learned how to use the Position It!
Stamp you image on the clear plastic. Place it where you want your design.
Line up the guide and stamp the image on black paper with white ink.
 Don't remeove the guide. Re-ink and stamp it again to make it extra white.
Heat set.

Next spray water on your rubber stamp. Color your stamp with Gelatos.
Using the Position It! line up your white image and your gelato gooey stamp and stamp. 
Here I spritzed water on the rubber stamp and stamped a second time.

Here's some of the finished cards. Each one is a little different in boldness.

Micro beads where added to the center of this sunflower.

I've been honored by the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers and named the newest Queen of Snark (which is shocking for some of you).  This title comes with the honor of being the guest designer for the new Farm challenge. I wanted to create a farm feel to the whole card right down to the embellishments.  I think chicken wire, feathers and twine should do it:) Club Scrap papers, ribbon and stamps. Impression Obsession background stamp. Darice embossing folder. Recollections feathers.  Inside of card: A true friend is one who thinks you are a good egg even if you're half cracked.

I hope you join us over at the Sisterhood and share your farm creations.
