A Sunflower Bouquet of Inspiration

#sarasherlock A Sunflower fall cards Fancy Autumn Sentiments Forever Sunflower Seeds Much Love Sara Sara Sherlock

Hi there!  It's Sara, and today I'm here to share a slight obsession with you.  You see, I had a little "problem" with one of the stamps this month - the problem was I could not set it down!  Today, I'm sharing several cards, all featuring the beautiful stamp A Sunflower

I colored the sunflower image with Polychromos pencils.  The sentiment was multiple die cuts stacked together and the final (top) die cut was cut from card stock that had the Glitz spread across it, and allowed to dry.  For the background, I inked the olive color, then added the gold Glaze color in spots.  I used the Glaze as fingerpaint to add a little shine to the leaves as well.  

For this card, I used: 


This second card actually has a video tutorial for it!  In our Facebook Community Group this month, I recreated this card for you as a live event, and you can watch it come together step by step in the replay.

For this final card, I used the Forever Sunflower Seeds Stamp repeatedly to fill up my panel, then added a little white pencil to each of the seeds.  The flowers were watercolored with watered down Paper Glaze Luxe.  To create the ombre look to the sentiment, I tapped on the orange ink to the top half of the stamp, then the dark brown to the bottom half.  Then I stamped it in my MISTI.  I repeated this adding more ink without being careful about getting it exactly in the same spots.  As the ink was pressed into the card stock, it reactivated the layer beneath and created a smoother blend between the colors.
