S unflowers just seem to say SUMMER and bring with them a smile to warm the heart. What better way to say thank you than with a bunch of sunflowers?
This card started with an over sized base of 10" x 6.5" scored and folded at 5.0".
The background was stamped in Early espresso ink with the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set. Only the larger sunflowers were given color with watercolor pencils in Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso. More sunflowers were stamped on Whisper White card stock and cut out by hand. These were also given color with watercolor pencils using the same colors for the flowers and adding Old Olive for the leaves. Some were adhered directly to the card, and the large flower was raised on dimensionals. Horizontal band in Mango Melody measures 1.5" x 6.5" and the sentiment from the same stamp set is stamped in Early Espresso ink.
