Sending you Sunshine, Laughter and Hugs


You might not believe this, but this gold embossed sunflower has been in my stash waiting patiently for years to be coloured and made into a card.... I mean before I started blogging in 2012, so up to 5 years prior to that.... and I was holding my breath as I wasn't sure how the white card would take to being watercoloured.   And isn't it funny how we all think "Sunshine" when we think of Sunflowers - they make me happy.  So I just used Brushos to paint my flower and added a slight green grey for the background, then used a marker to add an edge to the painted section, so it created a part of a frame.  Then I finished with a gold embossed sentiment and decided on a pale green card.  I am playing along with CAS Watercolour August challenge - Sunflowers.  Thanks for visiting and enjoy your weekend.
