On to the next sneak peek!

Sunflowers Graphic

Today’s sneak peek from Flourishes is Sunflowers, a gorgeous new set from Marcella Hawley. I have a huge bouquet in my living room right now that I can refresh daily from the local farm stand!

I stamped this stunning image on Flourishes Classic White card stock twice and colored it with Copics and added final shading with Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I cut the first image out with a round Spellbinder Nestabilities die and let the stem and bottom of right leaf extend past the edge. I then cut out the foremost layer of petals from the second colored image and curled the petals forward and adhered the center of it only to the main image. I stamped a second leaf, cut it out, and added it to the left side of the stem. I used the Big Scallop die to cut a piece of, what else, Bo Bunny Dot for a mat. The patterned papers are all from Fly a Kite by October Afternoon. I used a small rectangle Nestabilitie die for the lovely sentiment and finished it all off with a few Kaiser pearl.
