Priscilla’s Sunflower



This has been an arduous few days. When I found that my Comments button link wasn’t working (and it looks like it must have been out of action for the last couple of weeks, it took ages to sort out……consequently, my craft time has been seriously eroded into by emergency blog repairs. So, if you had tried to leave me comments on my last few cards and couldn’t, I do apologise. I did wonder where everyone had gone! LOL. Still, fingers crossed, everything should be hunky dory again now.

This card features an image using a sunflower head from Priscilla Styles but over at CDAC’s colour challenge, Priscilla was asking participants to confine themselves to cream, yellow and green. I was very good and managed not to add in a good dose of brown, LOL. I coloured the image in with Promarkers , (now then, you wouldn’t really expect me to use anything else would you, LOL) hoping for a golden glow to the flower head.

The background is constructed from yellow paper embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and the stripey paper was a digi paper I re-coloured to fit into the colour scheme required. Once these papers were cut to the shape of the circular base card I used 3 different ink pads to ink around the circumference, 2 shades of green and one of yellow.

The actual shape of the card and the sketch used came from this week’s challenge at Mojo Monday as the circular version they offered as inspiration seemed just perfect for this floral image. I found the yellow grosgrain, golden satin and dark green ribbons in my stash, but had to be a bit creative with the lighter green ribbons either side of the centre as I didn’t have the right colour I wanted, so I got out my Promarkers again and coloured my beautiful white satin ribbon light green instead!

Today’s card is bit of a change for me so I do hope you like it, and as my blog is now fixed, if you do like this card, you are now able to leave a comment!
