I wanted to play with my Twinkling H2O's and do a sunflower, so I stamped the large sunflower with the black archival ink from the flourishes set, then masked it and stamped the leaf and then masked it again and stamped the small sunflower bud. Then I used my waterbrush and coloured all of it with the H2O's. I stamped the sunflower again and coloured that in, shaped it and cut it out. It's pop dotted over the first one. I stamped the little ladybug, coloured it in with the glitter marker, then cut it out, shaped it and pop dotted it. The pic really doesn't do it justice, as it's much more shimmery in person! Then, I used the embossing folder on the patterned paper and the dark teal cst, sanded and used the rich cocoa around the edges. I punched the lattice out of the patterned paper and layered it on top, then pop dotted the sunflower, which I layered with the brown cst. Stamped and die cutted the sentiment and added the ribbon. Adhered all of this to the card base. That's pretty much it for this card............so I hope you all enjoyed my version of summer!!! Have a great week, till next time..............
