Sunny Sunflower

 Hello my CMHCD friends,

For today I am sharing our next challenge at Color My Heart Color Dare. This fortnight challenge is called Crazy 8. Choose any four blocks to create your design. Lots of possibilities here- I would like to ask you to please identify the four blocks you chose in your blog post. That way we know for sure what colors you chose. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I have wanted to use this faux stained glass technique for quite some time. I saw it on Jennifer McGuire's YouTube channel (click here for link). You will see in the next few photos why it is called 'faux stained glass'. The colors that I chose reminded me of a sunflower. My mother-in-law love to garden so I thought this would be the perfect card for her this Mother's Day.

Above: The sunflower was die-cut 3x from 110 lb. cardstock. I layered them on top of each other to create a well for the Multi-Media glaze. The first layer of cardstock was glued to the base then was colored on the inside using alcohol markers. Left/Below: The wells were filled with the Multi-Media glaze by Ranger. I started using another brand of glaze but it didn't level out as well as the Ranger glaze. This card looks fantastic in real life. Its depth is remarkable and so pretty. It is time-consuming and used a lot of glaze, but it was totally worth the time and supplies. I highly recommend this technique. Right/Bottom: The top layer of cardstock was brushed using the colors from the palette. To cover up the glue I made the colored top piece the last addition to the card.
