Hello Sunshine


Today I have a somewhat clean-and-simple card to share with you featuring Graciellie Design's "Summer Sunflowers."

One of the things I love about digital stamps is how flexible they are. You can re-size them, create a collage with them, crop them, invert or change their color,  ..... and the list goes on and on. You'll notice that the image I used on today's card does NOT appear in the set Gracie has for sale ....that's because I created it myself by cropping and rearranging the flowers in the Summer Sunflowers set to make my own unique digi! Fun - right?!



I created my background by stamping distress oxide ink on a narrow acrylic block I have. I spritzed it with water and stamped it on my paper...allowing the colors to run a bit before heat setting.

There i something about sunflowers that just make you smile! I do so love the watercolor background you created and all the splatter. Might I also say I love the area you photograph on and how it can be changed up!
