The Flower Challenge #35



It's time for a new challenge at The Flower Challenge and in August we'd like to see you use your favourite flowers on your cards. We are sponsored by Clearly Besotted who are giving our winner an e-gift card worth 20 GBP! As our Guest Designer we have the fabulous Therese Calvird.

I have to say I love pretty much every flower there is but if I had to choose one favourite, it would be gerbera daisies. Such gorgeous, happy flowers! I don't have any gerbera daisy stamps, so I decided to use Sending Sunshine stamp by our sponsor, Clearly Besotted. I know these flowers are sunflowers but let's just pretend they are gerbera daisies now... I coloured the flowers with my Copics  (I know the centers of gerbera daisies are different, not yellow, but that went so beyond my talents I just made them yellow..) and stamped my sentiment - it's Finnish for Happy Birthday. I then matted the panel onto pink cardstock before adhering it onto my card base. No embellishments here as I thought the flowers were enough on their own.




Now please visit The Flower Challenge blog for all the details on our August challenge and to see the lovely cards created by my awesome team mates and our Guest Designer.



Tänään alkaa uusi haaste The Flower Challengessä ja nyt aiheena on lempikukat. Sponsorina meillä on Clearly Besotted, jonne voittaja saa 20 GBP:n lahjakortin. Guest Designerina meillä on Therese Calvird

Itse pidän aika lailla kaikista kukista, mutta jos lemppari pitää valita, niin gerbera on sellainen. Kuinka ollakaan, minulla ei ole gerbera-leimaa, joten päätin käyttää tätä Sending Sunshine -leimaa Clearly Besottedilta. Auringonkukkiahan nämä oikeasti ovat mutta leikitään, että ovat nyt gerberoita... Väritin kukat Copiceilla (oikeasti gerberoiden keskusta on erilainen, mutta väritin ne nyt keltaisiksi, koska taitoni eivät veny oikeiden gerberan keskustojen värittämiseen..) ja leimasin tekstileiman. Paneelin kerrostin pinkille kartongille ja kiinnitin korttipohjaan. Mitään koristeita en korttiin laittanut, kukat riittävät.

It was funny to read your post, Milla. I just turned a stamped daisy into a sunflower. That's the beauty of art. You can create what you feel and not what you see. Your card is lovely no matter the flower.
