Hiya fellow crafters! I made a card that I just had to share with all of you so I'm here with a super quick post.
Joanna Munster from Inspired by Stamping put out a call for some crafty people to color one of her digital images for her upcoming newsletter. I was lucky enough to be one of the few to get my hands on the image early and color it up.
I encourage you to check out her blog here AND sign up for her newsletter. She sends out a wonderful newsletter and it usually has an awesome freebie. I have loved every one since I signed up. Without further ado...
To be honest, I'm not 100% certain that sunflowers come in pink but I found several images when I did a Google search. I wanted to color them up differently than the usual yellows. I printed the image out on Bristol smooth paper and picked up my Zig Clean Color real brush markers. I love these markers! I achieved all of the different pink shades with just two pink markers and a water brush. It's all about quantity and ratios.
When I got ready to do the centers, I added several dots with a sharpie. I knew they would hold up under the waterbrush. I then colored right over them. For a little extra bling, I added an assortment of sequins from my stash.
I grabbed one of my favorited rectangle dies (it's from Craftin Desert Divas) and cut out the flower layer. I cut a thin gray layer from MFT Stamps Steel grey. Also a favorite of mine. I popped that layer up with foam tape and attached it to a pink card base. And yet another favorite of mine, Sweet Gelato cardstock from WPlus9.
Hope you all have a great day!
