Flowers Galore!

I have been doing some organizing in my craft room again, and of course, I found stamps and supplies that I have not used in a while or at all.  YIKES!  So the Lawnscaping challenge to dust off my supplies was perfect. If you follow me, you know that I have found a renewed love for coloring with markers.  Of course, my prismacolor pencils were left to the side.  I used to use them all the time and exclusively for coloring since I was able to control the shading and coloring better than markers.  Of course, I love the markers for the vibrant look, I thought I turn back to my color pencils for a softer look.  Also, I have not used these Lawn Fawn Quinn's Capital ABCs and Happy Everything stamp sets in a while.  It felt good to pull out some of my old supplies, I felt like I was getting my money's worth out of them.  LOL!

First, I layered a white card stock with silver and black card stock.  Another piece of cardstock that I dug out, silver with glitter embedded in it that I got years ago.  Who knew I had a treasure trove right in my craft room.  :-)  Anyway, I sponged on Marvy Matchables yellow ink onto white cardstock with a flower stencil over it to create a soft background.  Then I stamped, colored and cut out the sunflowers and leaves from Our Friendship Grows stamp set, along with the letters from Quinn's Capital ABCs set.  I colored the letters with two shades of blue pencils and blend them with a blender pencil.  I placed them onto the stenciled background with glue dots and stamped the anniversary sentiment from Happy Everything set in Versafine black ink under the Happy sentiment.  
I finished the card off with hearts that I stamped and cut out before coloring them and putting Crystal Lacquer on them.  I like the way the card came out but when I showed it to my son, he said that it was "pretty good" but he had seen better ones from me.  :-0  Everybody is critc around here.  LOL!  Well, I like it.  I must be missing the sun since there's a lot of yellow.  :-)
