Sunflowers WCMB #3

Stamps: SU Provencal (Retired), A-Muse Tiny Bee, A-Muse sentiment
Paper: Really Rust, More Mustard, Summer Sun, Basic Black, White
Ink: Stazon Black, Basic Black, Chocolate Chip, Colorbox Cats Eye Shaders
Accessories: SU markers, More Mustard Ribbon, Flower + Rhonestone Brad, Rhinestone Stickers (Michaels), Stampin’ Up Scrapbook border stickers, Dimensionals

Yes, I’m still stamping. Every time I go to bed, my mind’s eye keeps seeing layouts and card designs and colors and I have to get back up and start working again. My mother used to call that “wool gatherin”. I didn’t know what she was talking about when I was young, but now I totally understand!! This card was fun to do. One thing I’m sure you realize is that I LOVE to color. I used SU markers for this image and then used a stipple brush on the color around the sunflowers and then I used a Prisma shader in gray to create a shadow effect. I used Spica yellow glitter pen on the tiny bee’s wings and did freehand for the flight patterns.
Hugs Linda

To Sara's mom..... I just love your sunflower card. I don't know how I got to see it on SCS, --sometimes you just find yourself there while looking for something else.
You must be the source of all this wonderful talent in your family. How proud you must be of you family and their accomplishments.
I worked with Sara in the beginning, and she is so patient and caring, trying to please us. Then she gets me, who doesn't know a thing about computers --terminology, codes, etc. She generously gave of her time and I will never forget it.
What a great Mom you must be !!!
