Hello and welcome to my new blog post.  

Today I am sharing with you a new design that I have put together for the next Inspire Create Stamping Challenge.

Challenge number 75 here at Inspire Create is all about the sketch meaning that I have created my card with the sketch below in mind for the layout of my card.  Sketches are a great way to approach your projects and I love to see how everyone interprets these so differently.  

For my card design, I have used the main image from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and coloured in with Stampin' Blends.  I recently saw another Demonstrator, Jo Blackman create a stunning card with this colouring technique and I just had to have a go.  For a first attempt, I am pretty pleased with how the image looks and will definitely be trying this with other images.  

For my colour palette, I have used a selection of yellows and browns for my traditional sunflower look.  Click the colour buttons below to find out what products are available in those colours.  

To complete my card, I have added extra detail with a heat-embossed sentiment (from my favourite Blossoms in Bloom stamp set), some Bumblebee Gingham Trim tied in a bow and some transparent Flowers For Every Season Gems.  

This stamping challenge closes on Sunday 16th August and we would love you to enter.  Click on the Inspire Create banner below to return to the original challenge post.
