Celebrate Sunflowers

The first time I looked through the Stampin' Up!® 2020-21 Annual Catalog I marked the sample on page 13 (thanks a bunch).  Yesterday when I sat down to stamp I remembered that sample and decided to use that sample as inspiration.

ASID-CelebrateSunflowers-whiteink

The large sunflower was stamped using Whisper White Craft ink.  The images were colored using Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencils .  I stamped all the flowers first and then colored the flowers.  The ink was pretty dry by the time I started coloring them with the pencils.

I inked up only part of the sentiment (left out the "you") in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then cut it out using a Stitched Rectangle die.  I wanted to use the Bumblebee Gingham ribbon so I used Bumblebee cardstock for the label and  the layer.  When I had everything layered up I felt like it was missing something so I stamped a few speckles using the stamp from the Forever Fern set using the White Craft pad.  The speckle stamp reminds me of a stamp set that we had a long time ago, Itty Bitty Backgrounds(I am pretty sure that is the name).  I never purchased it.  One day I had a bunch of demonstrators over to stamp and they were shocked that I didn't have it.  They said I wasn't a real stamper until I owned the set, so they bought it for me!  I remember that after that I used that stamp a lot and so I guess they were right.

I decided to try another color combination.  This one is Gorgeous Grape and Balmy Blue watercolor pencils from the Watercolor Pencils Asst 2.  I love how this one turned out.  The sentiment was stamped in White Craft ink on Gorgeous Grape cardstock and cut using the Stitched Rectangle dies.

I didn't have any ribbon that would work so I colored the White Faux Linen Ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack with the Dark Highland Heather Stampin' Blends.  I probably colored over the ribbon a couple of times.
