Making sunflower cards as a symbol against the ongoing war made some very talented artists offer free stamps to colour up. This is one of those stamps and it’s by Emily Midgett. I coloured it up in no-lines and simply stamped a black sentiment over the top. The sentiment is by LDRS Creative. I do like keeping things simple. 🙂
Don’t you just love it when, after colouring up an image, you realise you have the perfect sentiment?
That is what happened to me while making this card! First I coloured up this adorable dragon by Lee Holland, and after I had decided on the layout and die cut the coloured panel I remembered a stamp set I had bought recently and hoped it had a fitting sentiment. It definitely did!
The sentiment is from the huge sunflower stamp by Simon Says Stamp.
A bit of pencil colouring on kraft again for today’s card. I’ve used a Power Poppy sunflower stamp and coloured it in with my Prismacolor Premier pencils. I cut the panel into a square before putting it on my usual sized cardbase. An embossed sentiment on matching orange cardstock and some yellow enamel dots finished off the look this time.
There’s no secret that turquoise is my favourite colour. For my birthday this year I got a gift certificate for stamps at Power Poppy and I bought loads! These sunflowers in a vase is one of them. Isn’t it pretty? I layered it on the side of the panel and printed on a part of it. I think it looks pretty good on the side like this. I used a sentiment stamp from a collaboration set made by Hero Arts and Gina K Design and inked it up with ink from Altenew. The enamel dots are also from Altenew, whereas the cardstock is by MFT Stamps.
Another CAS card today, and as usual I am using an image from the Lili of the Valley pre-coloured art pads. I went completely out of my comfort zone and made a yellow card. I am not entirely sure that has even happened before… heh. The ribbon is from a local shop, the background is from a First Edition Paper pad and the pearls from my stash.
