For this week's CCEE challenge, I challenged my friends to go to Anna's photo gallery and choose one of her photographs that inspired them and make a card around that photo. For my card, I chose this beautiful sunflower photo. I love the happy feeling sunflowers evoke.
I used my Copic markers to color the sunflower. To replicate the tiny yellow dots in the center of the photograph, I used 3-D Puffy glue, heat set it, and then colored it with my yellow Copic marker. I cut the flower image and bent some of the petals forward for dimension. I watercolored the stems and leaves with Mellow Moss reinker and watercolor brush. My clouds were made with Stampin' Up's cloud template.
Please check out our CCEE blog if you'd like to see the creations my friends made and/or participate in our challenge. Have a happy day!
