Sunflower Sprite: GDT for Crafty Boots

Hello crafty friends!

Today I'm delighted to be sharing a card I made as Guest DT for Crafty Boots Challenges.

The theme is "You are my Sunshine" and you can make any project you like - it doesn't have to be a card, using whatever materials and supplies you prefer.  
The challenge is open until 12 noon GMT on 11th Sept.
I hope that you'll join in the fun!

I was Challenge Winner at Come and Get It and I got a Top 3 Award at Crafting With an Attitude                           


Also I was Designer's Choice at Cute as A Button.

I used the beautiful Sunflower Sprite from Aurora Wings.

I coloured the sprite with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, then fussy cut him leaving a thin white border. He is mounted on foam pads onto a Spellbinders Label which has been inked in Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade. The die was left in place whilst the inking was done and this left a crisp white border.

The background paper is from Trim Craft. It has a thin yellow ribbon wound around twice on the left hand side with some paper flowers and foliage. The flowers were made with a Heartfelt Creations Majestic Blooms Die; they were colour washed in Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade, then shaped and a grey pearl was added to the centre of each one. The foliage is from the Sweet Dixie Pretty Petals die set and was colour washed in Bamboo Leaves and Crushed Olive. Natural dried flowers from Anna Marie Designs were added too.

A small X-Cut tag has the Tim Holtz's chitchat words 'you are my',  and the word 'Sunshine' was die cut 4 times and glued one on top of each other, and inked in Mustard Seed.

I'd like to thank the Crafty Boots team for asking me to be guest designer this week. It really is a great honour!
