Sunflower Summer


I believe this is currently my favourite stamp!  I just love this Sunflower by Digi Design House!  I coloured the image with Copic Markers:  petals-Y17, YR21, YR20, Y17; centre-E99, E97, E34; leaves & stem-G99, YG17, YG07, YG03, YG000.  I always colour two of the blossom so that I can cut one out and layer one on top of the other to add fullness and dimension.  I put printed acetate behind the Idea-ology Fragment (I love that look!) and added some pins.  I have this sweet eyelet lace, but it seemed a little too wide so I lined up the ribbon on top of it and stitched it into place.
