A quick post today sharing another pretty sunflower card. This one uses an image from the amazing Marcella Hawley at Power Poppy. She has her sunflower image downloads available for free right now (and add a few non-free ones in while you are there as a thank you).
This set is called Sunflower Power and that seems perfect for right now, doesn’t it? I sized it to fit an A2 panel and then used the sentiment from the same download, also sized to fit in space I wanted. I love the digital option of changing sizes and perspectives. I have just realized that my printer can handle this with Hammermill card stock and watercolor paper. Game changer for me!
I colored using Copic Markers (colors listed below) and then added just a little shading behind the flower for depth. I felt like that color wasn’t showing enough so I added a stippling pattern using the same pale color but did some tip to tip color pick up for just a little more depth.
Flower Petals: Y13, Y08, YR24, Y38, YR68, E37
Flower Center: Y11, Y13, Y08, YR21, YR24, E35, E37, YG95, YG97, YG67, G99
Leaves: YG93, YG95, YG97, G99, YG67
Background: BG70 with stippling using BG70 tip to tip with BG72
Thanks for dropping by today. Back tomorrow with a fun surprise. See you then.
