That Cute Sunflower!

Ever since I made the ATCs above - you will find that post here - I have had an idea in my head. Finally I am going to share it with you...

This card includes a 'gift' as it has a decorated paperclip attached.

It is today's makes for Oddball Art Co - Our Oddball theme for this month is 

Flowers and Sunshine

 - just the cute image!

Step ONE

Print the image several times and colour with markers and fineliners. Attach to a large paperclip using hot glue. I added cardboard circles to each side of the paperclip with a cardboard filler in between. I then added images and raffia to each side, doubling up the images to make more petals. I then added pearls to define the eyes.

Step TWO

Prepare the back ground. I wanted a really colourful, sunshiny background and having watched a you-tube video by Carolyn Dube I decided to make some hot glue stamps on cardboard and use them on my Gelli plate. I tried to make some floral shapes as well as more abstract shapes.


I then brayered paint onto my Gelli plate in bright colours, removed some of the paint with the stamps and made a few pulls.

 The one I am using for this card is this:

I hope you can see some of the floral images...


Using a craft card, I cut a horizontal line across the front and glued the top flap down. I then added sections of the background to it.


I clipped on the paperclip
