Stand Tall

Sunflowers are my favorite flower! Love them so much! I am super excited for the release of the new Like a Sunflower set this month. Beautiful images with lots of ways to mix and match the sentiments!

When I first saw the half sunflower image, I immediately knew I wanted to try to make it into a full sunflower. It worked just like I imagined! I originally thought it wouldn't fit on an A2 card and was pleasantly surprised that it did.

I stamped the images on Canson mixed media paper with VersaFine Clair nocturne ink. I stamped the first half of the sunflower head, then cleaned off the stamp repositioning on the other side (lining up as close as I could) and stamped again. I did have some very minor gaps, so I used a permanent black marker and filled them in and you can't even tell.

I colored the flower and leaves with a combination of Arteza and Altenew watercolor brush markers and fussy cut out. I dry embossed a piece of Kraft cardstock with a honeycomb folder and then die cut with a stitched edge die. I stamped the sentiment with the same ink as the images and hand trimmed the banner ends. I assembled the card as seen popping up the sunflower with foam tape.

I am linking this card up to the Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge , anything goes.

I hope you enjoyed today's card and thanks for stopping by!
