Faith, Hope and Love- Fun with Prim Blessings
I hope all of you are having a great weekend so far! I finally had a chance to play with some of my new Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps and decided to create a Mixed Media card using Prim Blessings for the Splitcoaststampers’ F4A290 “Hopeful Change” Challenge as well as the HYCCT1502 "Cancer Free" Freestyle Collage Challenge.
Sunflowers are such a fun sign of summer and to me the hopeful change is when they produce the seeds that the birds will feast on in the fall and winter! My husband and I love to feed the birds and black oil sunflower seeds are one of their favorite treats :-)
If you have not visited the Splitcoaststampers’ F4A290 gallery yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- great inspiration from all!
Stamp the Prim Blessings sunflower and sentiment onto white cardstock, color with markers and a water brush, carefully cut out the images (or you can use the cute coordinating Primrose Blessings Die Set), add the stenciling to the background paper and use a sewing machine to stitch the distressed layers onto the card.
Finish with a natural linen thread bow and a few punched leaves.
