Open House Sunflower

Most of you who follow me won't be surprised to know the first stamp I KNEW I was getting from this new catalog was the Sunflower. LOVE IT!! I hope to play more with it soon, but the first thing I thought of to do with it was Poppin' Pastels. Love the result!!


Card base is Chocolate Chip. Background accent layer is Daffodil Delight. We stamped the Sunflower in versamark on the First Edition DSP. Love that paper-so glad it made the new book! On the Sunflower, we applied Pastels. Chocolate Chip for the entire "center" of the flower. We added some Early Espresso to the very center for accent. The petals are Daffodil Delight with More Mustard around the very edge for accent. I find what works best with this technique is to twist a sponge dauber lightly on the pastels to pick up the color. Then dab it over the image and then twist to set the color on the Versamark. We attached the DSP to the Daffodil Delight and then knotted a Chocolate Chip 1/2" Scallop Dots Ribbon around before attaching to the Chocolate Chip card base. The saying is from a new set, Pursuit of Happiness. Love that saying with the Sunflower!! We stamped it in Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla, punched with the Large Oval, layered on the Scallop Oval and attached with dimensional over the ribbon.
