A photo to treasure

I have to say every thing I look at on my table seems to make me think of Malcolm. Here is the middle sized sunflower with a little stamp I haven't yet decided to put into production. It is a quote for Winnie the Pooh.

  I needed to get focused so started a project with just one stamp and one ink pad. I used Oak House Studio Colour Chemistry pigment ink pad in Sienna and stamped on to cream stamping card cut to fit my frame. I stamped the sunflower around the edge.  I stamped the words in the same ink, on a scrap of cream stamping card.  

I stamped the sunflower again with sienna ink and added copper detail embossing powder. 

 I used a pental waterbrush with same ink to colour this sunflower, making sure I went over the outside lines for when I was cutting out


Here is the finished project, I have just blu  tac ed it together so Ben can change the photo if he wishes.



Right time for the traditional bacon sandwich of One Stamp thank to Ben,

I hope you are enjoying the day, don't forget to leave a comment to win the three sunflowers I am using.

This is lovely, it reminds me that I could use the sunflower stamps without using yellow and orange.
