Hi Friends!

It’s Susan here today with a card featuring some beautiful sunflowers from the new Such a Blessing Digital Stamp Set that was released earlier this month. If you love autumn, then you will LOVE this set. I needed a belated birthday card, so I paired the sunflowers with a sentiment from the Count Me In Digital Stamp Set.

I printed the images and the sentiment onto some white card stock. Technically it’s one image that I printed twice rotating one so that I had a mirror image of it. The sentiment originally has another line to it, but I cut it down to be just the part I wanted.

I colored the flowers using my Prismacolor Pencils (I’ll list the colors below for you). I started with the lightest color then worked my way to the darkest color layering each one starting at the base of the petal. I then repeated the process back down to the lightest color blending each color into the next while leaving a little white space at the tips of some of the petals.

I colored the leaves with a couple of greens and a little bit of blue. I added some Sheer Shimmer Sparkle spray to a clear stamping block then using a brush I added some sparkle to all the leaves. It doesn’t show that well in the photos but in person it’s perfect.

Here is the list of Prismacolor Pencils I used:

915 Lemon Yellow, 1011, Deco Yellow, 1034 Goldenrod, 1033 Mineral Orange, 1032 Orange, 122 Permanent Red, 946 Dark Brown

909 Grass Green, 109 Prussian Green, 904 Light Cerulean Blue


Thanks so much for spending a part of your day with me.
