Another great challenge over at HMFMC and I just HAD to use this image as we've been planting out our Sunflower seeds and they're one of my favourite flowers.
I used a mixture of Copics and Prisma Pencils to colour my image and I knew I wanted to use black so I tried to keep the colouring quite strong
Then I made a tag, being careful to put in some flourishes. I swiped the whole lot with a white ink pad to give a subtle chalk board effect
I added a little sunflower, mainly because I couldn't resist the scrummy dazzler thing that looks like a boiled sweet and is perfect for the centre of the flower
I wanted to make a box and a tag this week to give with an easter gift to my hubby. I kept the box quite plain because the tag is, admittedly, a little ooh la la for a man. I used a very simple matchbox design, so a box with a sleeve around it, then added a tassel as a kind of drawer pull. I'm pleased with how it turned out. I found some heavy 300gsm card so the box has a nice weight
Job done I think so I'm off into the garden to enjoy the sunshine. Have a great day whatever you're doing.
