Adding Sunshine

Hi all!  I’ve got a card for a few challenges today:


I used the gorgeous digi image Sunflower Power with its matching sentiment.  I just opened up an A2 sized canvas in Photoshop Elements and put in the image off the side and the sentiment in the bottom corner.  I saved as a JPG and printed out from Word.

I colored the sunflower with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and just a little water.  It’s amazing how vibrant the colors came out!  Finally, I shabbied up the panel by distressing the edges with scissors and sponging Distress Ink around the edges.  I added a thin strip of lace to the back and called it a day.

Here’s a video:

And here’s THE LINK in case you can’t see the video player above.

This is for the following challenges:

I hope you like it and TFL!
