Turning a Sunflower into a Gerbera Daisy

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday!!

Today is my day to take over the SumMoreFun Designs Blog.

Here's my inspiration for you using: Large Sunflower

Now I know the stamp is a sunflower but I really wanted to stretch the stamps use and decided to try using it as big bold bright gerbera daisy, you know the kind you see at the florist shops in an array of colors.

Card Recipe:
 Using a piece of Strathmore Bristol Velum that I die cut I stamped the image with versamark and used clear embossing powder and heat set the image. The flower was then watercolored using Gansai Tambi watercolors.  The watercolor layer was then glued to a die cut piece of black wood grain paper that I used a Stitched Rope Nested Rectangle die.  The whole thing was attached to a piece of Neenah 110lb card stock cut to A2 size.

  1. Hello
    I so love this post. The gerbera daisy were my nieces favorite flower in the whole world. She passed away 4 weeks ago, and everytime I see a gerbera daisy it makes me smile. Thank you for this smile today and for sharing with me.

    You did a beautiful job photographing the beauty of this flower. The petals are just gorgeous.

    Country hugs...
