Sunflowers

A recent request for a wedding acceptance card for a sunflower-themed wedding had me baffled until – the day after the request – I visited a craft show & found some sunflower stamps on the Inklyicious stand at a reduced price! Then the sketch over at Clean & Simple Stamping caught my eye, along with the vellum-themed challenge over at Cards & More.

The largest sunflower in the stamp set was stamped in Stazon black ink onto vellum then coloured with Promarkers. I fussy cut it & attached it to the card with some Stick-It double sided adhesive which is normally intended for diecuts but worked well under the darker-coloured vellum. I coloured it in artificial light but re-coloured it after seeing the photo;-)

The button was the medium sunflower in the set, stamped onto shrink plastic the cut out with a circle nestie die & heated to shrink it. The greeting was computer-generated in AT Mahogany Script.

  1. Beautiful! The sunflowers are wonderful stamps. They look great on vellum – I haven’t tried that yet. There are some leaves on the hydrangea set that pass for sunflower leaves, not that I am trying to get you to spend more, Lol!
