Sunflowers

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Another gorgeous day today, lovely to have the window open and hear the birds tweeting whilst crafting.

Again a card I have made using Sheena Douglass' Paint Fusion Sunflowers.  These are my happy flowers I love them as they always make me smile!


Recipe

1.  18 x 25 cm cream card
2. First layer is card from my stash
3. Mount board has been distressed with matt paint, PVA and another coat of paint.
4. Sunflower stamp is from Sheena Douglass' Paint Fusion Stamp Range which I have painted with Pebeo Acrylic Paints.  I then embossed over the flowers and word with WOW Gold embossing powder
5. To finish off I used distress ink dried marigold over the whole of the mount board, edged the mount board with Creative Expressions Metallic Gilding Wax in Enchanted Gold, added cream lace across the bottom, yellow flower buttons, butterfly and 3 pearls.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
