Chimayo memory

I was happy to see my large sunflower stamp used this week for the SDC161 (Stampotique Designers Challenge) sent out by Kristen.

It's interesting to see other artists' interpretation of the sunflower images.  My favorite sunflower memory was the abundance of them one sunny summer traveling in New Mexico.  Quaint floral yards with sunflower stalks hugging and hovering over fences. My, they were large.  The color was intense with a variation of hues on the petals.

I thought the line of the single stamped image (in Copic marker) speaks for itself against the sprayed and stencil background.  This reminds me of filtered light through a lace certain, perhaps in a little sunny yard in Chimayo.

Simple as this card is, it makes for a greeting of most any kind. 

I hope you enjoy it.  


  1. To me, the SUNFLOWER is the harbinger of Fall, and yours here is especially beautiful! Love that signature stitching, Janet!

  2. Kay, we've had large sunflowers up at the ranch this summer. Any season, I'll take them. They are flowers within a flower. <3
