We have a wonderful devotion by Karen L and a beautiful verse in digital form by Karen M!
Join in, you just might be the recipient of a wonderful challenge prize, seize the opportunity!!
Here is today's verse:
For my sample card today I choose a sunflower.
I stamped off two images using my ink pad with printer ink and pulled my colors
I laid down a base color:
Added more yellows and then worked in brown with a colored pencil,
denatured alcohol and a blending stump.
I stippled in the center using black, brown and dark green.
for a bit of life like texture I added black glass micro beads
I layered my fussy cut flower on top of the second stamped image - I also colored the petals in a dark shade of yellow.
A little lineco glue in the area I wanted the beads
I added my verse that I also colored and cut to shape
My next step was to find a good background paper, this bold image was going to need a high contrast background to make it pop:
And here is the card:
Here are a few sunflowers for you to have fun coloring!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see your entry over at Word Art Wednesday!

What a gorgeous sunflower, Ginny. Combining watercolor and pencils is completely new to me, but a very nice effect and the microbeads just complete it all. Simply stunning! Crystal
I don't think I would've come up with the layering without your clever suggestion. Beautiful card and very clear tutorial --- thanks for sharing your talent and a word from the Lord!
