Fresh Squeezed



If you were a flower, what would you be? "If I were a flower, I would be a sunflower. To always follow the sun, turn my back to darkness, stand proud, tall and straight...even with my head full of seeds." ~adapted from an exert by Pam Stewart



I'm so very delighted to be guest designing for Fresh Squeezed Stamps for the month of November, along with the talented designers Chari Moss, Arielle Gordon and Lynn Put (I know, good company, right?!) Fresh Squeezed Stamps have four sets for this release, and you have a chance to win the daily featured set on the Fresh Squeezed Stamps Blog.

I got to the opportunity to work with Soda-lighted, a really fun and cute set with large images and perfect punny sentiments...although today I chose to work a more traditional sentiment and images. I stamped the vase/glass and masked out the stem and sunflowers in the appropriate areas. The images were then colored with prisma colored pencils, and I finished with a stamped sentiment, rounded corner, inked edges and some burlap string.

Please stop on over to the Fresh Squeezed Blog for more information about this super fun set and pop on by their Facebook Page and say hello to Fresh Squeezed Stamps on their Twitter Page too! I'll be back on Thursday with another card featuring a different November set...I can't wait to show you!
