Sunny Sunflowers

A Color Study of Sunflowers

The past two weeks have been packed and have quickly disappeared as I prepare 3 different classes for Junkie Fest 2019 (end of June) AND for a new stamp release this June! I can hardly wait to start sharing sneak peeks for June’s Release in just a few days!

One of the challenging (but fun) things to do while preparing for a class workshop, is trying to figure out ink colors for a stamp set that is in the design phase! I often use a current set that has the same number of steps so I can get an “idea” if the ink colors I am picking for a class will work.

Here is my “test card” for one of my classes at Junkie Fest. That is all I am going to say for now. Stay tuned for sneak peeks in a few weeks.
