My Sunshine

Evening everyone...I hope you are al well?
Just a quick post as I have a few minutes spare before my show.

I thought I would share a card with you using the Sunflower Patch stamp.

  • I have stamped the image and coloured it in with distress markers.....can you see that I have stamped it wonky:) This was of course a happy accident as it now looks like the sunflowers are swaying in the wind.
  • I have matted the image onto blue card stock (I have die cut both the image and blue card stock using the Cut Mat Create collection) and then chosen a panel from the paper pad and matted it onto it.
  • Next I chose the check patterned paper from the paper pad and matted it onto my main card base.
  • I have added some Sunflowers which I stamped and die cut onto yellow paper. Also adding some yellow flourish leaves again from the Cut Mat Create collection and some Classic leaves.
  • I have added the sentiment from the paper collection to the top left hand side of the card.
  • The decorative border is also from the Cut Mat Create collection.
Oooh that was a quick post:)
Must dash, but I will be back soon for some more Sunflower Inspiration:)
Hope you are liking the shows?
