Water Coloured Sunflower Trio by Lesley


Hello Crafty friends! Lesley here and I am thrilled to share three cards I made using the fabulous stamps from Jane's Doodles and SRM Press! I have been away from my craft room for a month, so I was pretty excited to get inky today! I decided to get out some water colour paper and to use my distress inks to "paint" the sunflower image!

I used the Autumn Blessings stamp set with both the Clear Stamp Big Thank You and the Clear Stamp Big Hello stamp sets.  I used a tiny bit of lace to trim this card. The lace is also new and is called Lace/2” X 25 Yds. - Ecru.  I cut off a piece to fit the width of my card and then taped it under the panel.

 I kept the designs simple and tried to let the sunflower shine! I stamped the sunflower with Stazon ink on the water color paper and then using a water pen, I coloured each flower using distress inks.

I love how the BIG bold hello stands out on my card!  I'll be using these sentiments a lot I'm sure!

 I kept my colours bright and then did a green/aqua wash behind the main image. The sentiments were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

LOVE the way this Thank You sentiments looks on my card!  So BIG and beautiful!


I added a bit of Twine on each card to tie them all together. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have the chance to get "crafty" soon!
