A Flower at Midnight Madness

I was ready for Spring, now I will take the Oklahoma heat of August. We still have almost 16” of snow on the ground. And we’re getting ready for another 5”-10” again on Wednesday. This is nothing for people living up North, but Oklahoma? We are used to maybe a blizzard for 24 hours, but the next day could be 50º. The snow would be gone in 48 hours. It’s just sticking around. Darn that “global warming.” LOL

Anyway, on to my creation.

First the sketch. This is Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #90. This sketch was wonderful to work with. I so love sketches or what I would call a “layout.” You can make it fancy or plain. The deadline for your creation is Feb. 14.

The image that I used is from Priscilla’s Digi Store. Priscilla’s wonderful illustration is from the Sunflower set (a set of 3)  I did morph it a little and I have never seen a pink sunflower. But that is the beauty of digi stamps and our imaginations. I printed the sunflower three different times in three different sizes. I then colored each one. I cut and layered the first complete sunflower. The other two layers are the bloom only in two different sizes. Hope you like it!

My recipe:
Copics: RV00; R81, 83, 85, 89; YG91, 93, 95, 99
Pens: Spicas in Pink and Olive; Gelly Roll in Clear Star
Inks: Distress in Peeled Paint
