Sunflower Thank You with Atlantic Hearts Challenge Sketch
Hello and welcome to this week's Atlantic Hearts Challenge sketch inspiration. I created a very special thank you card. I began with a sunflower photograph that I captured and printed. I then dug out my sunflower die. It is a bit time consuming to put this flower together but I believe the end result was worth it.
Here's this week's sketch
I cut all the petals and leaves. I inked all the edge
I shaped and sculpted the pieces with a stylus and foam. You can purchase a foam mat for this purpose but I reuse pieces from brad packs.
After gluing the pieces of the flower together. I glued down some of the center piece die cuts. I added chunky brown glitter and let that dry. I finally added Judikins Rox to the center for a very textured multi layered flower.
I die cut the sentiment out of the same card stock as the sunflower petals. I layered it on some dark green ribbon for a pop!
I always cut a writing mat for the inside of a dark card base. I don't always add more decoration inside but the rest of this sentiment worked perfectly.
Here is a view from the side so you can see the dimension of the flower.
