More Sunflowers...

Happy Tuesday,

I hope everyone had a fab bank holiday the weather here in the UK was fabulous!  Todays card is a version of last months workshop card this time with more flowers and shading.




I cut the gerbera wreath twice each in 2 different shades of yellow and mounted these, using 3D glue dots, onto a layer of hessian.


I stamped the flowers and shaded them using izink pigment inks in orange and yellow.  I added orange flower soft in the centre which really adds some realism and zing to the flowers.

I added the flowers to Gerbera leaves and knots of the hessian.

Enjoy...

  19. You really hit it out of the park with this card. Your gerberas are colored perfectly. One wants to water them and the background creates a perfect setting for them. Lovely.
    Have a wonderful day,

    Another beautiful Gerbera card from you John. I'm so glad that I bought 2 of your Gerbera dies and if I've any money left after my upcoming holiday I will try again to add to my collection.
    Thank you for sharing.
