Kre8tors Blog Hop - Colour Challenge

Thanks so Much for stopping by!

For those who are stopping for the first time, 
my name is Annette Ball, I am an independant Stampin' Up! demonstrator in Canada.  Welcome to 
Stampin' with the Bees.  

Today I am participating in the Kre8tor's Blog Hop 
This month's theme is a Colour Challenge

While I did not exactly use the colours suggested I used the colours I saw in the photo, not having noticed the little palette below.  And while colouring the sunflowers I thought isn't it cool how Stampin' Up! has given us the ability to colour flowers pretty much any colour we want...

I used sponge daubers to colour my sunflowers.  I started with Blushing bride to get that pale pink right to the edges.  Then I started adding flirty flamingo with a light touch deepening the colour towards the middle mostly working in a circular motion but also back and forth trying to stay out of the middle.  Finally around the center I used a bit of calypso coral to deepend the colour around my daffodil center.  The leaves were coloured in the same way using shaded spruce with a very light touch.
My white background has been embossed with Dainty Diamonds and all the die cuts are from Basic Black.

I hope you enjoyed my card as much as I enjoyed making it!! Everything used is available at my online store if you live in Canada, just click on the Canada Flag on your right.
