Hello Sunshine


Hi everyone.  Today my card is for the latest challenge at Inkspirational - Challenge #17 - Sketch.  I LOVE this CAS sketch and plan on making a few cards using it.  This card was super quick and easy as I used up some leftover images I had on hand.  I colored several of these sunflowers when I made a card a few days ago and I always keep extras handy just in case they fit something I want to make ... so happy to actually take something out of my leftovers box ... I usually am just adding to it! :)  Hope you like.






Stamps:  Sunflower Vase (Bugagoo); Word Salad (Paper Smooches)
Paper:  White, Gumball Green, watercolor (SU!)
Ink:  Black, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Little Leaves Die (Sizzix), Postage Stamp Nestie (Spellbinders), blender pen, glue and dimensionals



I colored the sunflower using the marker layering technique (ink and blender pen).  I fussy cut it out and popped it up with a dimension on top of the stem to give the flower some depth.

Fun and easy card!

Here's a close-up of the image:

  7. Left overs do allow for quick and easy meals...or cards... and sometimes they are even better. I'm hoping your family is well and thriving. Hugs C
