Brighter Side

Hello and welcome!
Today I have a pretty sunflowers card made with minimal art supplies. And I am just madly in love with this card. The outcome is just awesome.

I love drawing the images by my own and I started with drawing sunflower but somehow I wasnt happy with it. So decided to give a try it with freehand brush strokes of my watercolour cakes. And I was satisfied with first one. I made two flowers to complete the bunch look with some leaves around. I added all the details of flowers and leaves carefully after doing layers of colouring. I fussy cut the flower bunch.

For the background I smooshed black colour with lots of water leaving one corner more white for sentiment. I sprayed green colour with brush on the background.
For the sentiment I hand lettered it directly on background. I used calligraphy pens from Artline. 1.0 tip for smaller text and 3.0 tip for larger one.

I placed the background on base card and popped my sunflower bunch on it. I added little more interest in background with my honeycomb stencil. For it I used bundled sage distress ink from Rangers but seems my dabber wasnt clean and gave a different shade. I finished my card by adding few green rhinestones. Here is a closer look of sunflowers 
And the last completed card with supplies
I want to enter my card in 

Hope you all will also like this card. Thanks for visiting. Hugs, Priyanka.

  4. What a great background and the sunflowers and leaves created using layers of watercoloring is beautiful, not to mention the beautiful calligraphy sentiment. I did some class similar to calligraphy but my comfort zone is not there. Beautiful card and thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble, and please come back for future fun challenges.

    1. Thanks Suzanne! I love calligraphy but this didnt turned out as i wished. These callygraphy pens are new in my stash, still need practice to use them effectively. Surely I will join more challenges.
