Hello Sunflower

I'm sharing my third project for Tsukineko this month, and this time I was challenged to use a specific set of products.   I started with my Fireworks spray in Cottage Ivy, and sprayed it all over my piece of cream card stock.  Once it dried (it didn't take long), I inked up my large Sunflower stamp (from Stampendous) with the new Tomato Vine Kaleidacolor pad and stamped it on the lower right side of the panel.

I really like the way the flower looks when it's off-centered on the panel like this!  Using Memento Dew Drops in Morocco, Bamboo Leaves, Rich Cocoa, and Peanut Brittle, I sponged ink on the edges with an InkBlusher until the desired effect was achieved. 

I tried to capture a good shot of the shine from the Fireworks spray, but I'm not sure I did it!  I added a simple sentiment from the Happy Messages set (stamped in Rich Cocoa ink) underneath my main panel, which is matted on brown card stock. 

This was a quick and easy card to put together, but has so much color and detail!  I will be duplicating this one to put in gift sets, for sure!
