Ghosted Sunflower


Hi everyone.  Back again today with another sunflower stencil card.  I'm having a lot of fun figuring out different ways to use my new stencil I received as a gift from Bonnie.  And I used a fun word die for the sentiment, sent to me by my friend Barb. I'm so spoiled!  :)

Yesterday I shared THIS CARD, using the stencil with a sprayed background and Brushos to colour the sunflower.  Today I have a more delicate image of the sunflower, done by sponging the background with two distress inks (spiced marmalade and worn lipstick), then using the ghosting technique to remove colour to create a soft and subtle design.  Another fun way to use this stencil and I'll have more to share soon. :)

Again, playing along with Time Out Challenge #61 - Inspired by Words ("Wherever you go, no matter the weather, always bring your own sunshine").

Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Certainly put a smile on my face. I have been immersed in Wimbledon tennis this aft after the hairdressers and Al out on the tractor. I love watching the doubles, it's something I can relate to more than the singles. Murray won and will face your compatriot in the final on Sunday! :)
