Did Someone Say Sunflowers?

Look what image my Secret Sister, from the Stamp Shack, gave me. No sooner was it in my hot little hands, I was playing with it. I was so very excited to receive a stamp from my SS, but a sunflower--wow! Guess she peaked at my blog and saw I have a love for them. I can't share what company it is from because it came to me in an unmounted red rubber form. Lucky for me I just happened to have a gigantic clear block to mount this stamp on.

Image was stamped twice onto watercolour paper. Putting my Tombow markers to use, once again, I used yellow, orange, two browns and three greens. Next, I cut out three leaves and one sunflower and mounted them onto my card front with glue and with pop up dots. Unfortunately the photo does not reveal the layers very well, but if you peak closely at the following you might just see the layers: Green under top sunflower, right two leaves, and the full sunflower head on bottom sunflower. When I cut away the bottom flower, I also cut out several petals to give it that added dimension.
