Bright Sunflowers on Green Stripes

A bright trio of sunflowers for this week's Papertrey Ink sponged stamping challenge on Make It Monday.   I love the depth and variation of color in this technique.  Since my sunflowers aren't just the traditional yellow, I gave them some nontraditional vines for their leaves.

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) vintage cream, orange zest, and the stripes print from PTI simply chartreuse (medium green) pattern pack.
  • The sentiment "hello" is from PTI communique sentiments, the flowers are from PTI simple sunflowers, and the leaves are from PTI turning a new leaf (small vine).  
  • I sponged and stamped with PTI ink cubes in bright buttercup (yellow), pure poppy (red), orange zest, terra cotta tile (deep rusty orange), summer sunrise (yellow-orange), simply chartreuse, new leaf (deep green), classic kraft, and dark chocolate (brown) colors.
Created for Operation: Quiet Comfort.
