To Brighten you

Front View
 Hello friends ! Hope you all are crafting and doing good :) My apologies for not replying to comments and queries on my posts,I was traveling last few days ,so away from home,crafting and blogging.
Now to my card , I had stamped and colored the sunflowers before leaving but could not complete the card and it has been sitting unfinished for 15 Days .I am glad that finally I managed to compete  it :)

Side View
The stamp is "Sketched sunflowers" from Stamplorations and I have followed one of the technique from  Online card class - No line coloring and combined it with usual shading technique. It involves stamping the image with light ink so the lines are not visible and then coloring it.I have used regular water color pencils for coloring.

Layering on card
The sunrays are also colored using water color pencils.I layered a white textured handmade paper on card base followed by olive colored textured paper for grass/leaves and then the paper pieced sunflowers.The center flower is adhered using foam tape for dimension.Finished off the card with handwritten sentiment.

I would like to Thank Sherry (owner of Stamplorations) for such Beautiful Giveaway .Hope you like it !

  8. It's a beautiful, bright, happy card & that stamp is YUM! LOOOVE that technique you have used...looks like you've drawn the flowers by hand, because of the light stamping. Great idea!! TFS:):)
