There was a sketch challenge at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps challenge blog, "The Sweet Stop," that I wanted to participate in. The challenge also had a spin to it and that was "sunflowers". I thought about the challenge for several days and this is what I came up with.

A friend was clearing out some of her stamps a few months ago and gave me this stamp. I was also watching a video on how to color images with water based markers on kraft paper; so, I thought that I would give it a try. I embossed the image with white embossing powder and colored the image with water based markers. I was pleased with  how easy it is to do that. All the different pieces of card stock were laying around in my craft room -- just had to resize them. I also had to rotate the sketch to make a better fit for my stamped image.


  1. Very cool look with the white embossing on the kraft paper & the coloring!
