Watercolored Coneflower – by Guest Designer Chris Franco

Good Sunday morning everyone!

We have a fun surprise today. We’d like to introduce you to Chris Franco who will be a Guest Designer for us, popping in at random over the next month or two. Chris fell in love with our Coneflower image after seeing it in use by our Design Team and couldn’t wait to get it inky herself. She went clean and simple and the results are just stunning! Take a look:

Chris chose to watercolor her image, creating a washed background.

I’m loving how she used just a portion of the stamp and blocked the design with the verse from scripture stamped beneath.

This card is clean and simple, flat for mailing, and as fresh and lovely as can be!

Here’s a closer look.

Such a fun, quick and easy card design!

Thank you so much, Chris!  Can’t wait to see what else you create for us!!!

You can find Chris’s post on her blog here.
