This is Pam from Papillon digital designs and TheBugBytes today at Shes a Sassylady. Thanks Sheila for having me here.
I was thinking on a project to do and I though I would google wikipedia and enter the month August. It's so cool - Sometimes when you are stuck and want inspiration doing something like this is the way to go. Sometimes I just want to try a particular technique and I build on that.
So when I read the article I saw that August 's birth flower is Poppy and I wanted to do a card with poppy as I had a lovely silhouette 3d poppy file
Here's the card
Here's a peek at the silhouette file
The leafs get the color variation in color by using the distress markers and waterbrush and then adding a bit of subtle glitter with spica pen
Here a closer look of the spica pen effect
It isn't as overpowering as stickles and I love that bit of shine.Here's the inside of the card
So google up a month and get inspired by the facts you read and make yourself a project.
