Muse sunflowers

This week's Muse is Anita Bowden who has created a lovely card to inspire us.  I really liked the way the sentiment stood out and tried to emulate this. I had difficulty finding a suitable flower stamp until I remembered I had this sunflower one which creates beautiful backgrounds. I stamped the sentiment and then masked it before stamping the flowers with 3 colours of distress inks. Finally I mounted the panel on foam tape and attached it to the card base.

Materials used:-
Sunflower stamp - Creative Stamping magazine issue 19
Sentiment - Stampin Up Sassy Salutations
DI - mustard seed, ripe persimmon, carved pumpkin

Thanks for visiting - I really appreciate your comments! Margaret


  1. You are definitely right about that sunflower creating beautiful backgrounds! Such a sunny card - love that font of your sentiment, too!

  2. I always think that outline stamps look so good in colour when I see people do it like you have here, but never think to do it myself! lol! So glad you joined us at Muse this week!

  3. This is so lovely and love the warmth of the sunflowers and the sentiment style suits them perfectly!x

  4. Love those beautiful bright flowers Margaret! Have a lovely evening! Hazel xx
