A Sunny Pair

I love sunflowers and this Penny Black pair found it's way into my stamp collection.

I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic markers.

I actually did this sunflowers quite a while ago and it ended up in the UFO box.

It was time to put it on a card!  

I'm entering this at

Lovely. (and if I don't have this stamp I've got one similar. So thanks for reminding me!) The centers look so velvety...and your coloring on the petals is just perfection. Of course I love the chocolate background with all the texture of the emboss lines. Yummy. TFS & Hugs

So glad you retrieved the sunflowers from the ufo box - they are too lovely to languish there! Beautifully coloured and perfect sentiment to go with them.

I have that same stamp that I practiced coloring with my Ziggies a couple of weeks ago and now I can't find it. Your coloring is wonderful and the sunflowers look great with the brown arch around them. It gives me an idea on how to finish mine off.
