It’s All About Flowers at Lacy Sunshine

Happy Sunday! It is beautiful in Oklahoma! I am ready for everything to start budding and blooming and me sneezing, but that's part of it! With that said, we have a new challenge for you over at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog. This will be our 30th challenge and the theme is “flowers.” There is a loyalty program going on. Please make some time to check that out. You won't want to miss it.

For my flowers project, I chose a Flower Pot Pretties, Gemma Gerbera Daisy. Heather, artist and owner of Lacy Sunshine, has some of the most darling Flower Pot Pretties for you to play with. I colored Gemma with Copics, Spica pens, and a white gel pen. My cardstock is Rich Razzelberry and Old Olive from Stampin’ Up! The designer paper is from my stash.

Copics used:
E000, 00, 11, BV000, R20
Hair: E 50, 51, 53, 55, 57
Flowers: RV21, 69, 93, 95
Leaves: Y21, 25, 67
Flower Pot:     E1, 15, 17, 18
Background: W0, 1, 2, RV21

This was a very simple layout, which I like. If at all possible when I am designing, I want that image to pop off the page. For “Gemma Gerbera Daisy” I die cut with a very old Spellbinder’s die, Scalloped Edge Frame (I have no idea if it is even available today). My daisies are cut from the Rich Razzelberry cardstock and a Sizzix Flower, Daisies #2 die. After cutting the daisies, I added some Clear Wink of Stella Brush Marker for that added sparkle. These brush markers are my favorite glitter markers, it’s glitter on steroids. 

Gemma Gerbera Daisy is available for purchase in my Zibbet shop.

I hope you join us for our Lacy Sunshine’s 30th Flower challenge. And if you do use a Lacy Sunshine digital or rubber stamp image, we would love for you to join our Lacy Sunshine Facebook group and show us your little piece of art.

I am thrilled that you took the time to make a stop today. If you have any questions, please contact me.
