‘X’ for Xanthic

Hello there. The Alphabet Challenge has started a new challenge. Veronica is hosting this time round. I must say I had no clue what ‘Xanthic‘ meant initially – but it means ‘relating to yellow’. So – here is my card:

Here I played with ink smooshed card stock in yellow and green – inking, smooshing, splattering – all to have some fun and play.

Once those pieces had dried, I used the Honey Bee Stamps ‘Lovely Layers: Sunflower’ die set to cut out the leaves – layering several of the sunflower petals together – even cutting into the leaves a little for more movement and dimension.

The background is a stitched diagonal cover plater from Reverse Confetti, and the sentiment is from Altenew.

Some sequins added for something extra.

The Design team have a very varied take on the ‘Xanthic’ theme – it would be great if you were to check them out – and hopefully we’ll see you in our gallery. xx

I shall be entering the following challenges:

Watercooler Challenge – anything goes

Die Cut Divas – angle it (stitched lines angled)

Lil Red Wagon make it stitched (background panel stitched)

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge anything goes

Cupcake Inspirationanything goes

Arty Divas – anything goes

  1. You came up with a beautiful card for a tricky alphabet letter. I love the motif of a 3D sunflower, and with all the ink splatters it turned out so well – as if each petal hat its very own shade of yellow. The sequins remind me of dewdrops, and the pierced lines in the background are a clever detail, too: a perfect way to fdecorate the all-white space without taking attention from the floral centerpiece. I’m sure your card will make somebody’s day beautiful.

    Hugs, Veronika
