Sunflower Chevron

Julie Warner –
It’s Dare to Get Dirty week on Splitcoast and I made this for Cindy’s (DTGD13onehappystamper) fabulous challenge! You’ll need to be a Fan Club member to view the challenge, so check it out! Since I took my Copic certification classes from Cindy, I thought I’d better use them for her challenge! For my card, stamped the large sunflowers, colored them w/ Copics and fussy cut them. I added just a hint of sparkle in the flower centers w/ a Spica pen. They’re attached to white die cut layer.

I have 2 tutorials for doing this Monoprint Background…the first was for the Splitcoast Fan Club back in 2099 when I was on the Dirty Dozen team. If you’re aFan Club member, you can view it HERE. The second, is an updated tutorial from June 2013 with a few fun additions and you can view it HERE. This background is part of some I made using a chevron stencil and pigment ink. When I finished one background, I put the stencil (with all the ink still on it), ink side down on another sheet and brayered over it and this is what I got. It’s attached to a chevron embossed white background. The greeting was stamped on a die cut circle and attached to a stacked die cut pennant flag. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used:
