Hexagonal Sunflower (??)

Here's my entry for the Less is More Challenge this week where the theme is HEXAGONS.

I don't have any hexagon dies or punches so wasn't sure what to do. I then decided to use the computer to print a hexagon to create a frame on some cream linen card - I cut out the middle, edged the hexagon with Olive Versacolour (so I could see where I'd inked) and then heat embossed it with gold.

For the insert I gold embossed the Sunflower stamp from Oak House Studio on some yellow card and then watercoloured it with Tombow pens and a water brush.  It's just finished with the sentiment stamped in Vermillion Archival.

Well I think summer may well be here - our rose on the front of the house is over a fortnight late flowering but the sun is shining and it's supposed to be positively hot tomorrow.....long may it continue!!  

Thanks for looking and for your comments!!


  1. Hi Elaine, your sunflower is gorgeous and I love how you embossed the edge of the hexagon in gold, it is very effective. Hot tomorrow? Can't wait! Hugs, Anne x
