Thinking of Happy Memories
by Michelle Bala


Hello! Michelle here, wishing you a very Happy and Blessed Easter! I hope your family and friends are close at heart!  I love this stencil, Leafy Rows. I inked up some Watercolor Paper with distress oxide inks in shades squeezed lemonade, fossilized amber, and spiced marmalade. Than I add my usual splashes of paint. This time in white, gold, and black. 


I stamped the single sunflower and leaves from the stamp set, Sunflower Wreath. I used Copic Markers to color in shades YG03, YG25, YG17, N3; Y17, E97, E35; E25, E27, E29, E79, E49. I added a few white accents with a gel pen.


I used a sentiment from Poppy Stamps, Friendship and Kindness...I think it's perfect for what some of us are feeling right now. I embossed the sentiment onto vellum paper, than wrapped it around the stenciled panel. Than adhere that panel to the card base. Lastly, I adhered the sunflower onto the vellum with foam tape and embellished with a few gems.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy your day!
