a friend of mine was looking for a note card with a sunflower. she is a big fan of the movie 'under the tuscan sun' and loved how the woman wrote note on note cards with sunflowers. she asked me if i could make a card with a sunflower - no words, just the flower. well -- i thought i had a bigger sunflower stamp, but this was all i could find. i'm still not convinced i don't have one somewhere, and if i do i'll make another one ;)
this is a simple, but cute card - just like she wanted.
i'm not sure where the image comes from, and the papers are just scrap i had on hand. i colored the image with colored pencils and gamsol.
she also mentioned that black-eyed susans are one of her favorite flowers, so while i had my SU inspired by nature stamp set out i made this one for her too.
this isn't something i do very often -- simply stamped right on the card. i usually like to layer things and make colors pop. but this seemed to work nice - it looks water-colored, but i simply used markers directly on the stamp. the colors used were also from SU - old olive, summer sun, and close to cocoa.
hope she likes them!
thanks for stopping by! happy stamping!
