Hello everyone! Hope you’re enjoying the first weekend of July!
The July challenge at The Flower Challenge has started today. Our theme for July is Summer/Winter (You can choose one of both seasons, depending on where you are living! ).
I chose Summer and for my DT card I used one of the digital stamps from Alex Syberia Design called Sunflower Close Up! It’s been so long since I used colored pencils for my card last time. So I wanted to color this delicate sunflower image using my colored pencils.
I changed the color of the Sunflower Close Up image into yellow on Word and printed it on a teal colored cardstock.
I colored the sunflower using Luminance colored pencils. This one sentence took me more than four hours 🙂 . Even though I used lots of bright yellows and white pencil, the teal colored background is still showing through 🙁 . I also colored the background in various blue, teal and green colors using Prismacolor colored pencils.
I trimmed down the colored panel slightly smaller than A2 size and foam mounted it on a teal cardbase. I added tiny dots on the flower center using a white gel pen. I finished off the card by adhering my white die cut sentiment which was cut using Many Sentiments Coverplate die set by The Ton.
I had so much fun coloring using colored pencils again! Hope you enjoyed looking my card too 🙂 !

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
