Peachy Keen Stamps: May Photo/Color Challenge

Hello everyone! It's time for a new Color/Picture challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps. 

Here is what I created for the challenge.

I love the idea of the flowers in the can. So I used the same idea with my peachies. Instead of a can, I used the jar from PKSC-16 April 2013. I first stamped it onto a white card stock cut out and colored it with Copic Markers. Then I used a vellum overlay on top.

For the flowers, I used PK-646 Faceless Fall Fun 2. I first stamped and paper pieced two layers of the sun flowers on yellow card stock. I then used a Copic marker to color the top layer and accent the bottom layer. For the center, I stamped them onto brown card stock and used a 1" EK Success Circle Punch to cut them out. I added glossy accents to the brown centers and then covered them with clear glitter. The leaves are from My Creative Time's Stitched Leaves. The stems were cut from SVG Cutting Files: Sun Flower Cindy.

I stamped the sentiment from PKS-22 October 2013 onto a cut out from My Creative Time's Just Live Simply Die. 

The ribbons from American craft. Enamel dots from Recollection's. Pattern paper from Simple Stories: Summer Fresh and Recollection's.
