Outlines 'Round the Corners challenge

Our team challenge this week for Outlines Rubber Stamp is 'Round the Corners.  We are to use no sharp corners on our cards.  Please stop by and visit the rest of the incredibly talented team and see what they have created for you.


I began with my largest Cheery Lynn Designs Scalloped Circle Stackers die for the card base and card front.  It makes a card that is 5 5/8" round.   I used the coordinating Cheery Lynn Designs Circle Stacker and my SEI Sunny Day paper pack to create the background panel.  Next I stamped these gorgeous Outlines Sunflower, Paisley Butterfly and the Leaf (two times) with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Cryogen paper.  Copics used:
Sunflower and Butterfly - Y35, Y38, YR07, E08
Leaves - YG61, YG63
Shadow - W3
I trimmed all the images out and popped up the Sunflower, sliding the leaves under the edge.  I only glued the butterfly along the body so the wings can bend up for more dimension.  I added some accents with my gold Viva Decor Pearl Pen. In addition I added the sentiment Happy Day.  Finished size is 6" square.
