Good Sunday morning! How about this one for a sunny way to start the day! I just love this sunflower set, I remember the first time I ever saw a sunflower growing in a field and I couldn't believe how big it was, I was in absolute awe over it! I had a bit of a play with the background on this one. I'm sure you can spot it but I used the shaving foam technique to achieve this one. I used Wild Honey, and Bundled Sage reinkers on the shaving foam. I swirled it with the back end of a paintbrush until I was happy with the pattern, then dipped my white card stock into it. I used a ruler to wipe away the excess foam to reveal the pretty pattern left by my swirls in the foam. I dried it good, then stamped the Moroccan Lattice background stamp over it using a clear Perfect Medium pad. I heat embossed it with white detail powder. I wrapped a piece of moss green vintage ribbon around the side of the card and taped the ends to the back. Next, I stamped my sentiment on white card and cut it out with the Vintage Bracket and Labels dies by Becca Feeken, making sure that the sentiment was to the right of the label shape. I inked it with Wild Honey Distress ink while it was still in the die. I stamped my sunflower, coloured it with Distress markers and cut it out by hand. I mounted it on foam and attached it to the left of my sentiment. I cut a tag from the same set and used it to peek over the top and bottom of my label shape before attaching the piece to the centre of my card. I tied a messy bow out of the vintage ribbon, added a Bakers Twine bow and finished with a light brown Dazzler in the centre. I finished the card with a double white mat with my signature paper pierced inner layer. Don't forget, if you like it, you can pin it to your Pinterest boards. The button is at the bottom of the post. Finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x 8" in size.
