The Sun is Shining over at Just Us Girls

It's Saturday so Hi and 
Welcome to today's post for Just Us Girls
Our Host for our Photo Week is Nancy
who is certainly thinking of 'Sun'
with this gorgeous Sunflower Bloom.
I was undecided as to stamp or use a die cut
for my sunflower but decided on a die and to
make my sunflower a little different.
I cut several flowers and simply cut them in half.
First off  I stenciled my Tim Holtz Stone background
with Gel Medium and Magicals in Burnt Orange
then quickly added Ranger Copper Embossing
and heat set it adding another texture onto white cs.
I then cut out some green flourishes.
Attached my sunflowers then added 
MS Brownstone Glitter to the popped embossed centres.
My STAMPlorations sentiment
 is inked with VersaColor Bronze.
Finishing with a yellow cotton bow.
Papers used were SU Hello Honey/Mossy Meadow.

Please pop over and see how our
Talented Guest  Patti Kehl and the Team
were inspired by that gorgeous Sunflower
and come join us this week.
Hope to see you in our Gallery.

INA! This is INCREDIBLE! It is melt-my-heart gorgeousness! I love that textured brick-stone wall behind your pretty die cuts. It's the type of card that would cheer anyone. In fact, it's perfect for framing. Your details, right down to the perfectly tied bow, are fantastic! Gorgeously done. Thank you for sharing your inspiration, and how this masterpiece came about. hugs, de (thanks for your recent, dear comment on my blog as well) xx
