Sunny Goodness

 
Good Morning.  Sending you some sunny goodness today with my big sunflowers and the challenge at Splitcoast called 'glazed over'.  Such a happy card.
I began by stamping my sunflowers from Penny Black called Sunshine and coloured them with Copic markers.  I cut them out and edged them with a black Memento marker so you wouldn't see the white edges of my flowers.  I them added a generous amount of Glossy Accents to the centers to make my flowers pop.  It looks like the sun is shining on them IRL.
For the background, I did a reverse stencil inking by applying Distress inks to the back of my stencil, spraying with water and pressed my paper into the wet ink.  It made for such a sunny and bright backdrop for my sunflowers.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Friendship Flowers set.
 
 Also adding my card to these challenges:
 
 
 
Simon Says- SUMMER 
 
 
 
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
 
Supplies:  stamps- Penny Black/ stencil-TCW/ Distress inks/ Copic markers/ Glossy Accents
