You Are My Sunshine

Don't you just love sunflowers.... they make me smile

And Sunflowers is the theme at Double 'D' Challenge  

  • From my stash of white card I picked a long piece ready cut for a slim line card... so that decided by style
  • Stamped the Hero Arts - Sunflower, randomly over the card with Versafine Smokey Grey
  • Then enjoyed some time while I watercoloured using Distress Inks - mustard seed, fossilised amber, carved pumpkin, Brushed corduroy, gathered twigs  and  used bundled sage for a light background wash
  • Ran the panel edge over a black ink pad which helps define the piece against a white card and attached it with double sided tape
  • To finish I die cut the sentiment from CUTplorations, in white and black and then two more times and glued them together to give dimension..... with the white one I first watercoloured with DI mustard seed and fossilised amber and ran red marker around the cut edge

Thanks for stopping by my blog,  have a Wonderful Creative day,   cheers  Robyn
And here is Watson.... he always likes to come sit on my knee while I'm at my desk... a bit of attention is all he needs and then he's off



  1. Wow, Robyn, this is one beautiful and awesome card! I love that your stamped the sunflowers on something other then black, I need to do this more often as it's a beautiful look! Thank you for joining our challenge at Double D!

  2. I have plenty of sunflower stamps as that is my daughter's favorite flower. I also have that "You are my sunshine" die. I sang the Sun Shine song to my daughter while she was growing up and then I continued singing it to all my grandchildren. Needless to say, I love your card and find you painting amazing. When do you get the time to do all that you do???
