Sunny flower!

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Hi there! Well we had some sunshine today before the clouds rolled in bringing more rain! I managed to plant a few things I had in pots, they look happier now they've got their roots in the ground! I made a sunny card in hope of more sunshine! The fab sunflower is a digital stamp from Paper Garden Projects called Sunny Flowers Digital Stamp Set available at The Digichick.

I printed the sunflower out twice and colored loosely with watercolors. I cut each flower out and layered them together. The sunflower centre is a large fabric covered button that was beige and I rubbed with coffee ink. The leaves are from Roses in Bloom by Waltzingmouse Stamps stamped onto patterned paper from Crate Paper Portrait Collection. The sketch I used is this week's sketch #15 from Sketchbook Saturday Challenge.

The sentiment is from my favorite sentiment set Say it Loud by Waltzingmouse Stamps. I stamped it with VersaMark and heat embossed in white.

The dotty paper is from Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe. The cute little bee is from the Happiness is... Stamp Set from The Craft's Meow, I used a foam pad to add dimension. I added the little flight trail with a white pen... just for fun! : )

These wouldn't be colors I'm that comfortable with but I try and step outside by comfort zone every now and again! The yellow dotty ribbon is from The Ribbon Reel.
