Sunflower Cool Vibes Card

Hello friends, thank you for stopping by.  Today's card has been created using Spellbinders Sunflower Cool Vibes by Stephanie Low Stamp and Die Set - now, before you say anything I do know that sunflowers are normally yellow - but I have used a little creative licence and gone with pink! 

The image has been stamped onto Watercolour paper using Imagine VersaMark Ink and sprinkled using White Embossing Powder, this has been heat embossed usin a Heat Tool.  Next it has been cut/embossed using the co-ordinating die and the Platinum Die Cutting MachineI have coloured the image using Melissa FrancesWaterColour Paints and an Aqua Brush.

The card front has been cut/embossed using the Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken #5 #6 (#1 being the smallest)  This has been randomly splattered using Imagine Fireworks in Danube Blue and then popped up onto a slightly larger pre-cut pink card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.

I have finished with a computer generated sentiment adhered to the lower right hand side of the flower using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.  I do like this sentiment - it is perfect for so many occasions - birthdays, Mothers Days - even Weddings!
