Sunflower Hugs

Today I printed out a digital from Power Poppy which was offered as a freebie and then colored it with my Prismacolor pencils and some Gamsol. I  printed the sunflower onto sand colored paper instead of white and I like how it looks after I did the coloring.


After I had the design colored I simply added some orange and yellow rhinestone gems to finish it off.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Atrtsystampers Challenge #22-Fall Flowers
Double D Challenges-Sunflowers
Creative Confetti Challenge   

Oh, and on the bean card I hand drew last post. I finally finished the inside by adding this sentiment:

And I'm
not stringing
you along!

Well, that is all for me today. I hope you week is going well.

God bless,
Verna

Looks like you learned how to make your flower POP by making the background darker. This is so lovely and that sunflower is just pushing off the front of your card. Great job.

It's a great sunflower and beautifully colored too! I've been thinking I should look for some sunflower stamps just because I'm so enjoying all of them lately
