Card Recognition

Sunflower hello



I have been giving Kim at Off the Wall Craftiness a hard time for her colors, which is silly because I keep making cards even though I don't love pink and teal, but this week she, not only picked my card from last week as the winner (it's a random draw, but I like random prizes), but she has picked some colors that I like. I've used the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch. I have to admit that I am normally in awe of the coloring jobs I seen out there in the land of card blogs, but last night I had my girlfriend's set of watercolor pencils and I copied the exact coloring of this Hero Arts sunflower (how nice of Hero Arts to give me such a great coloring job to copy!). I think it turned out really nice (I made two, so be warned, another sunflower is waiting in the wings). Since I stamped the sunflower, I'm going to enter this in Jenny's Wee Memories challenge, it helps that Kim and Jenny are real life friends, congrats again ladies that your respective challenges are growing up and getting design teams, woo hoo!

Materials: Hero Arts sunflower, Hero Arts tiny background stamp, PTI sentiment, Stampin Up blue card stock, Spotlight yellow card stock, strips of yellow scraps, white gel pen, versamark, Stampin Up watercolor pencils and blender pen, Stampin Up black ink
