Do you spy something BRAND NEW?!!!!!! A new illustrator from MFT! This is "Birdie Brown Designs". I could not wait to color up a little scene for this new "Sunflower Sweetheart" stamp set!

There are A LOT of sweet details on this one, let me point out a couple of them:
First off, there is a Die-namics set that you can purchase with this stamp set called "Sunflower Sweethearts Die-namics". No more fussy cutting around images and they come out so crisp and perfect! I cut the image from X-press it paper and then stamped in memento ink. I colored her hat FIRST with my copic markers. I then took a piece of burlap and spritzed it with blender solution and pressed it into the hat. This is what gives it LOVELY texture!

You may also notice the Sun Ray Stencil in the background. It is airbrushed with a few yellow copic markers, getting more orange near the center of the sun. It is giving off yellow light, so the clouds, bird and everything in the scene has a bit of a yellow glow.
Next up, the fence! This was fun to create too! I colored it up with my copic markers (you see the bit of yellow glow near the top of the fence). I then spritzed my new "Wood Plank Background" with blender solution and pressed my fence into the background stamp. WOW! This made my fence look real! 
Here is a peek at the inside of the card....since the outside is so detailed I thought I would simplify it on the inside.
Products available March 11th!
