Ukraine You're on my Mind

  Hello, So glad you could stop by. If you seen my last post, I had created a card to show my support for the people of Ukraine. So for today I have created another card. 

This Image is a freebie over at  Ink Blot Shop. Thought it was so kind of them. I have seen so many wonderful cards in support to Ukraine created in our awesome crafting community.

In case you don't already know the Sunflower is Ukraine's national flower.

I  colored the flag and sunflowers with different brands of alcohol markers.

I sponged the sky with S.U. Bashful Blue Ink (retired) and I also used a stencil from Stamplorations called Clouds. Sponged the grass with S.U. Ink Wild Wasabi (retired)

The sentiment stamp is a retired set from S.U. called Upsy Daisy.

I watched a video of a woman named Yana on youtube that I follow where she showed how to do a blend free way of shading with alcohol markers so I did that on the sunflowers.  

Yana is from Western Ukraine and has been keeping us updated on whats going on. I know that she is scared and it just breaks my heart. 

Please keep her and the people of Ukraine in your prayers. If you would like to follow her on youtube. Her name is Yana Smakula.

If you create a card showing your support on any mainstream media please add #cardsforukraine to your photo. 

I think that will be all from me today. Thanks for stopping by, God bless!
