I love sunflowers
I love sunflowers (as if you can't tell -- ROFWL). When I saw this Inkadinkado image, it "spoke to me" (learned that saying from my girlfriend - LOL). It said, "go outside of the box", and so I did. I embossed this image with black, on black paper (as if you couldn't tell), and painted the image with Pearl-Ex powders. Each of the 20 cards I painted were unique from each other--a bit of pink here, a deeper shade of green there, and I love them all. Each image called for their own colour of matting, depending on the look of the background. After I matted and placed the image onto the card front, I added a Stampendous "Sympathy" sticker, ribbon, and three mosaic tiles rather than the usual brads. Now, if I can just figure out how to add a dragonfly to that sunflower!
