note cards for a friend --

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!
