Welcome to week twenty of our Art With Heart 2023-24 Colour Creations blog hop!
Crushed Curry is such a rich golden yellow, the ideal shade of yellow to use for sunflowers! I bought a bunch of glorious sunflowers this morning to give to my friend Rachel for her birthday.
This week was the perfect opportunity to make a sunflower card using the Abundant Beauty Decorative masks. I had overlooked these masks until I started seeing so many gorgeous cards made with them!
You get seven masks in this pack – four masks to create the sunflowers, one snowflake mask, an autumn leaves mask and a “David Jones” argyle patterned mask. At only $18.50, this really has to be the best value product in the entire catalogue!
The beauty of masks is that they are so simple and versatile to use.
You can add colour and texture with Embossing Paste and Palette Knives, Classic Stampin’ Ink, Blending Brushes, Sponge Daubers or trace within the mask outlines with Stampin’ Write Markers or even Watercolour Pencils.
I’ve used large and small blending brushes to add colour from my Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Old Olive ink pads. Notches at the top of the masks make for easy alighnment.
Using the ink already on my blending brushes, I also added a couple of sunflowers to the envelope and to the inside of the card.
The “Thank you” sentiment on the front of the card was heat embossed in white onto Basic Black cardstock.
