Guest Designer Tracy Ware~ Sunflowers & Stencils!

Hi Blank Page Muse fans!  

How’s everyone doing?  How’s everyone holding up during this unprecedented time?  I will admit that I’m an introvert, so being at home has been great for me!  Our May challenge is Stencil It!.  So let’s take a look at my project.


So for my Sparkle and Shine, I opted to go with DecoFoil Metallix through a stencil.  It gives it great texture, and I love texture!
My main focal point of this card is a beautiful Sunflower Blossom.  I stamped the image with dye ink, and I colored the flower with Copic markers and Copic fine detail black markers.



When I was ready to assemble my card, I decided that I would like some black leaves.  I know this type of leaf is not a sunflower leaf, but that’s the beauty of art!  You can make it what you want it to be!
I glued the black leaves to the card panel while holding the sunflower in place so that I could get the leaf placement correct.


I used foam tape for the Sunflower Blossom to give it some dimension.  I hardly ever make cards 
without sentiments, so this was a challenge for me.  But leaving the sentiment off lends itself to using this 
card for whatever occasion might pop up.  I’m trying to make more “art” related cards without 
sentiments to add to my stash.


I hope you guys have enjoyed this project!  Thanks for joining me on the Blank Page Muse blog.
