Hi there my stamping friends! Welcome back for Day 2 of Power Poppy's August stamp release! Today we are featuring In Praise of Sunflowers. I'll bet she looks familiar to you! :) Marcella brought back her incredibly popular Sunflower digital images and combined them with some sweet sentiments.
For my card, I chose the sunflower bouquet in a vase. I stamped the image with Memento's Tuxedo Black ink on to a die cut panel and colored it up with Copics. I added a little shimmer with a Wink of Stella clear brush pen. My card base is a couple of simple patterned paper layers with a punched trim, ribbon and button. Some stitching adds a little extra detail. To finish it off, I adhered my colored image panel.
Oh my goodness, how I love this image. It was so much fun to color up! All of those beautiful details that Marcella is so famous for definitely make this image a show stopper. The finished size of this card is 4 1/8" x 5 3/8".
The set has some sweet sentiments in mixed fonts which I l-o-v-e! I am trying to do a little better about showing a photo of the inside of the card.....I have been inspired by my lovely Bloomie sisters, Cindy Lawrence and Tosha Leyendekker.
So that is all for my little card today, but once again, my a-mazingly talented Bloomie sisters have quite a hop for you so make sure you check them all out and leave a little blog love while you are there. Don't forget to check out the post on Power Poppy's blog for some insight into Marcella's lovely images for this stamp set. Then, please stop back by tomorrow for Day 3 of our August stamp release, the final set in the Nature and Nurture collection. This set will have you wishing for those crisp autumn days that are hopefully coming soon! I am certainly ready for some cooler weather. :) Thank you so much for stopping by today and until tomorrow, take care!
