Every time I search Celebrate Sunflower images I get a sea of yellow and gold. I’ll be honest: I’ve discarded multiple versions trying to find other color options, but I think I’ve found one that’s a keeper.
- Stamps: Peaceful Moments, Forever Fern
- Color Palette: Whisper White, Just Jade, Coastal Cabana, Pool Party
- Accessories: Sunflowers dies, In Color Enamel dots, Stampin’ Sponges, White Crinkle Seam Binding, Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, Vellum card stock
I’ve LITERALLY just finished this card, and have taken photos in order to share this today. I’ve been crafting a lot but sharing, well, not so much. I am so pleased with this one I didn’t want to wait another minute!
I wanted more texture but with a soft focus, and sponging gave me the result I wanted. I almost kept the little leafy bits to white and vellum, but at the last minute decided to add a couple of stems in Just Jade at the very back of the leaf stack.
After determining where I would place the white sunflower die cut, I started sponging dark-to-light from the center out. I sponged across the bottom and nearly but not completely to the top, and used Pool Party ink to add a few speckles from the Forever Fern set.
I’m off to try this in other colors. I promise I’ll be better at sharing!
