See! I told you I'd be back soon! =D
This is the card I created for my Grandmother for Mother's Day. My family is very close, and I lived with my grandparents for a while growing up, so I wanted to make sure she received something extra special. Sunflowers are her favorite, so when I saw this sunflower digi by Happileigh Scrappin' I just knew it would be perfect.
I printed three of the sunflowers and colored them and the sign using colored pencils and Gamsol. (I'm getting more and more comfortable with that stuff. I love the soft look it gives!) Papers are from Ciao Bella and my scrap stash. Even though the dps are lightly designed (sort of hard to tell in the picture; they have kind of a watermark design) I thought they were too plain....so I took my light green Souffle Pen and drew some dots, lines and squiggles. I'm kind of diggin' the way it turned out (luckily because I SO did not want to have to cut those sunflowers out again). Added Stickles (are you surprised??) to a few petals and the middle of the sunflowers, added some other flowers and a few sunflower seed stickers, and voila!
Oh! I forgot to mention, the sketch I used is from The Pink Elephant. See:
