Today I would like to share with you my creations which features Close To My Heart’s S2006 Stamp of the Month- Garden Tags. I have decided for this blog hop to choose just one stamp from the set and focus on how to use that. I find that it is the best way to get the most use out of a stamp set. My choice for this hop is the Sunflower tag because it gives me the flexibility to test 3 different techniques.
The first technique I wanted to share is using the Close To My Heart watercolour pencils to colour the flowers and leaves and then use the Waterbrush to blend the colours together. It gives the tag a beautiful gentle look while making it pop off of the card.
The second technique I wanted to share is paper piecing which is probably the easiest of the 3 because it just means stamping the tag onto White Daisy Cardstock and then stamping the extra sunflower in the set onto Canary Cardstock and cutting around it. Pop some foam tape onto the back of the flower and cover one of the sunflowers on the tag. This gives dimension and creates a focal point.
The third and last technique I wanted to share is using the Triblend Markers to colour and outline the flowers. This makes the tag really stand out and be a focal point on the card and is great for bold fun cards.
