Pinwheel Card

I'm on a pinwheel kick right now, even adding them to my seasonal decor! When I saw Vicky Hayes's beautiful grassy background on a card, I knew I wanted to try it, and add pinwheels for a focal point. She used a marker to color only the grass portion of an image from Love and Sympathy, and restamped the image several times, and added sponging for an amazing effect! You can see the original here.

I stamped and sponged exactly like Vicky explained (she is really amazing!); first sponging with Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, and Island Indigo. To get the Island Indigo very light, I removed a lot of the ink off my sponge onto my grid paper first. Then ink up the grass portion of the Love and Sympathy stamp, ink Garden Green, and stamp repeatedly.

To my background I added Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Marina Mist DSP from the Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper pack. I started with a 1" square, marked the center (using a grid ruler), and clipped half way from each corner to the center dot. Then I folded every other corner to meet the center, and glued it down flat with a 2-way glue pen. You can see a visual on how to make a pinwheel, on a much larger scale on my blog.
