Guest Designer Jessica – Part 2

Hello again!  Jess here with my second guest post for Krumspring Stamps!  My first card introduced my surprise challenge but this time I wanted to play along with a few of the challenges myself! 😉 So I decided to go with triangles, flowers, Keeway’s color palette, and watercolors!  And this is what I came up with:

You might have seen my sunflower from For My Sunflower on instagram a few days ago…I colored it for Kathy Rac’s The Daily Marker 30 Day coloring challenge and then decided it would be perfect for my card!  I used copics to color the flower and then fussy cut it.  I stamped the One Triangle at a Time stamp onto watercolor paper with versafine and then heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Then I smooshed broken china, salty ocean, tumbled glass, and chipped sapphire distress ink onto my craft mat and spritzed it with water.  I pressed my background into the wet distress ink and let it soak in and blend together.  After a few seconds I lifted the paper and heat set it.  Then I repeated the process a few more times until I was happy with the coverage.  I let it dry overnight and then adhered the sunflower with foam mounting tape.  Finally I stamped the sentiment from For My Sunflower onto white cardstock with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder before adhering it to my card with foam mounting tape.

I love the contrast between the yellows and blues and how bright and cheerful it ended up!  I hope this gives you so more inspiration for the Spring Festival challenges!  Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!

    Jessica, your sunflower is positively stunning set against the multi-shades-of-blue smooshed triangulated background! Artsy awesome! This one *needs* a frame; it would make a gorgeous piece of home decor in someone’s kitchen or sun room!

    Wow-in the short time I’ve been a subbie of Jessica, I’ve seen and learned so many tips and been amazed at her coloring. Her style works well with these Krumspring designs. Thanks for offering the giveaway, too.

    I was almost convinced that I didn’t need the Sunflower stamp set from Krumspring, but your card convinced me that I NEED TO HAVE IT! 😆 Thanks for sharing inspiration!

    Beautiful coloring Jess! I love that background stamp, many shapes out there but no full background, definitely going on my wish list. The center of the sunflower is awesome, I love the 3D effect. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

    I love sunflowers. Yours is beautiful, and I love the contrast with the blues.

    I keep trying not to spend money, but I’ve found more stamps that I HAVE to have! 🙂

    Your card is absolutely gorgeous! I really love the ink smooshing – I used to think it should cover most of the page more or less evenly, but with those little splatters and some white space, it looks even more stunning!!!
