Sunflower Smiles

Ardyth here with a card perfect for late summer - filled with sunflowers under a bright blue sky.

I started by stamping the sunflower from Best of Fall on a stack of sticky notes and cutting 3 masks at the same time. This made the stamping go much faster.

Then I coloured the sunflowers with Copic markers using a bit of shading to create dimension, but not worrying about light source or anything too technical.

Finally, I created the sky by covering the area with a light blue marker and then pouncing the colourless blender all over, lifting the blue and creating a sparkly effect.

I cut the panel with 2 Stitched Dot Rectangle dies, and glued the frame portion directly to the white card base. I stamped a sentiment from the Aloha stamp set on the smaller panel and then popped it up with foam tape for some interest.

Here's a quick video:
