I haven't been joining in many challenges lately because if I win a gift certificate I can't seem to curb myself to just that amount but instead buy a lot more. I love buying more but to tell the truth I am running out of room so I figured I best not tempt myself. But when I saw the Double D Challenges theme was Sunflowers I just had to join in with a card I made using an Artplorations Sunflower Stencil and a Cutplorations die which are all part of Stamplorations. I used inks from Rubbernecker to add the colors with a blending brush. I just love this stencil and I had so much fun. And that is a wonderful sentiment especially this time of Thanksgiving. But it works all year long as far as I am concerned.
I took a marker and with a little darker brown I tried to add some texture to the centers of each sunflower. I thought it might bring a little more realistic look to them.
Thanks for stopping by on this rainy day. And, it is to really get cold I hear and we may be having a hard freeze in the next few nights. They even mentioned that word SNOW! Not sure I am ready for that unless it falls and disappears right away. Anyway, everyone take care.
God bless, Verna
