The Art of Blending - a tricky one - but very useful and needs a lot of practice.
The background for this card is made using Distress Oxide Inks. I stamped the sunflower image and coloured it with water colour pencils and paints. The image was then fussy cut and layered up onto the background panel. Stamped the sentiment. The stamp set was a free with one of the English craft magazines.
Hope you enjoy the warm sunflower sunshine. We have beautifully clear sunny days here at the moment - but it isn't warm! Perhaps I will turn the sunflower around to face me.

Awesome job with your blending on this pretty sunflower. As you mentioned, it takes practice, but you are off to a great start, and the more you do, the easier it will become. Keep up the great work, and thank you for joining us.
