Single Sunflower


I hope you had a great weekend.  I sure did...I took over the kitchen table and stamped like mad at every opportunity I got.  I am pleased with quite a bit I made and look forward to sharing :o)

I made this card for a fun Sketch Challenge over on Stamp TV and even combined it with the Potluck Friday challenge which was to use sunflowers on a project.  I love the big sunflower from Melanie's stamp set A Year of Flowers and stamped it with Memento Black and colored it with my Copics.  I don't have the exact yellow I wanted, but created a more subdued yellow by combining it with a caramel Copic.  The designer paper I used is Basic Grey June Bug, which I LOVE...I almost didn't buy this one, but so glad I did.  I love red/yellow together and find this card quite cheerful and I don't generally like bold brights colors and patterns, but this I *love*.  It just makes me smile :o)

Well, I have a busy day here.  It is the first day of VBS this week and I am teaching the 4 year olds.  I haven't done this age group in years and have some fun things planned and look forward to working with them.  By the time I come home, my youngest will go down for a nap and maybe, just maybe I can stamp some more.
