I have been trying to squeeze the face and flowers on an A2 size quarter-fold card, which really isn't easy.The face is fun, and the various flowers are awesome, especially since I love flowers! So here is what I did to complete this card.
First of all, I prepared an A2 card front with a piece of patterned paper 1/4" smaller all the way around. I then stamped out the face and colored it in with Prismacolor pencils. I love Prismacolor pencils because they are so creamy and really do blend well when layered. I stamped the hydrangea cluster stamp on X-press Blending card and colored them in with my Copic markers. There is also a single flower that I stamped and colored also, so I could adhere it with foam tape and pop it up for dimension. One of the exclusives of these jumbo flower stamps, is that Stampendous also has the wafer thin dies that match the flowers so you can cut them out quickly and layer them if you wish. I love to fussy cut, so I didn't purchase all the dies that were available.
The glasses that I cut for the face were described on a video on YouTube from Stampendous. There are several videos available from the designer of the faces and flowers line, and she gives you great ideas on projects to use the faces and lovely flowers. She also gives ideas on different hair styles you can draw, paint, or create if you want your face to have hair instead of the jumbo flowers. To complete the card, I trimmed off several of the flowers that hung off the edge of the card. I also added a small banner saying, "hello Friend"!
Have a nice week, leading up to a wonderful weekend. I am busily trying to finish my "class project" from My Creative Classroom.com, and will share it with you as soon as I do.
