You are my sunshine (posted by Claire)

Hi there, Claire here with my first sample with the beautiful Sunny Sunflowers stamps. 


To create the flower I stamped the large flower and small flower twice on white card with clear embossing powder and coloured with Diarylide yellow panpastel before cutting out. The flowers are layered up with 3d foam and a little glitter in the centres. These stamps are perfect with PanPastels as they pick up the detail and shade the flowers without any effort at all.

The background was a bit of an experiment, I had some Heidi Swapp Invisibles in my stash which I'd been hoarding for ages. I just swiped Diarylide yellow panpastel over the top and then buffed up with some tissue. I added a computer generated sentiment and a couple of die cut swirls created using  a Die-namics fancy flourish die.

I think you're going to love these new stamps, my very talented teamies have certainly come up with some beautiful artwork so keep popping back so you don't miss out

  4. Love the crispness of those white swirls against all the texture of the yellows & the patterned background.
    The PP reallu give some texture to the flower's centre too.
