Blue Sunflower

Since we’re doing (mostly) blue cards today, mine showcases this wonderful Sunflower image done in blues w/ a little coral for an accent color. I think I’ve said this before but I try not to let reality get in the way of how I color things. You’ll probably never see a sunflower this color in real life, but I like it! And because I love a good contrast, I paired the shades of blue w/ a nice corally-orange dot paper. A big scallop die was used on the bottom strips and the 2 shades of blue paper are actually the flip sides of one sheet of textured c/s. I used a pennant die for the sentiment, added a little twine bow and some beautiful little Swarovski crystals. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Here are the Tombow markers I used to color my sunflower and the ink I used to stamp the images. Julie Warner - justwritedesigns

And last but not least, is my notebook page along with supplies I used. If you haven’t tried the Picksey Pick Ups, they are fabulous! Makes working w/ those little crystals an absolute breeze!

  1. This is stunning Julie. Love the color combo – would never have thought of a blue sunflower – but it certainly works for you!

  2. The color combination is gorgeous, Julie! I love how you used that sunflower image in a totally different way than what would be expected. What a great card!
