Cheerful sunflower card w/ a mosaic background die cut out of paint chips. Lots more pics & a hint for doing this.
For the Inspiration Challenge (IC901), we’re visiting a Pinterest Board of Crafty Morning, where I was inspired by the technique in THIS video & also by the picture of THIS sunflower bouquet.
So, I pulled out a box of paint chips I have & selected some colors I liked. I used a die that cuts multiple circles to save a little time. The variegated paint chip colors were glued to a white bg in an attempted ray pattern. It’s not perfect, but I like the colors spreading out like they do.
The sunflower is a layered set, so very easy to stamp the outline, then fill in the colors w/ the solid layers. I made 2 of them then die cut them. One was used for the top flower & the second one I cut apart, popping up the center on top of the 1st flower, & the petals were attached underneath.
These are the little bins w/ all the circles cut out of the paint chips.
The first few paint chips, I wasted some time trying to poke all the circles out. The paint chips are thick & have a coating of some sort so most of the circles tended to stay in place. When I stopped poking them out, I found it was much easier to keep them in place & poke out the colors in order I wanted to use them. Worked out much better this way!
