Word Art Wednesday and Sunflowers and freebies

I'd like to invite you to join Word Art Wednesday's Anything Goes Challenge #194!
We have a wonderful devotion by Karen L and a beautiful verse in digital form by Karen M!
Join in, you just might be the recipient of a wonderful challenge prize, seize the opportunity!!

Here is today's verse:

For my sample card today I choose a sunflower.  

I stamped off two images using my ink pad with printer ink and pulled my colors

I laid down a base color:

Added more yellows and then worked in brown with a colored pencil, 
denatured alcohol and a blending stump.

I stippled in the center using black, brown and dark green.

for a bit of life like texture I added black glass micro beads

I layered my fussy cut flower on top of the second stamped image - I also colored the petals in a dark shade of yellow.

A little lineco glue in the area I wanted the beads

I added my verse that I also colored and cut to shape

My next step was to find a good background paper, this bold image was going to need a high contrast background to make it pop:


And here is the card:

Here are a few sunflowers for you to have fun coloring!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see your entry over at Word Art Wednesday!

ATC's + Freebies

Do you like to make ATC's - Artist Trading Cards? I do, I like to make them and receive them!
I like to make the back interesting too.  I've just made a few backs for the ATC's and I thought I'd share them with you.

For my ATC's I use at least three layers: the top fancy layer,  Chip board and backing.

Here are a few of mine:

Here are the backs for you to copy and save for your stash!

Thanks for stopping by!
