★ Wishing you Sunny Days- Heartfelt Creations

Its Wednesday, its Heartfelt Creations Day and its also New Release Day! The Classic Sunflower Collection has launched today and this collection is warm, inviting and reminds me of home.


That sunflower stamp coordinates with the Sun Kissed Fleur Die that was released last year.  I stamped on water colour paper, heat set with white embossing powder and coloured the image with Distress Markers. Once cut out i  misted the back of the flowers and scrunched the petals a bit. The water releases the starch in the paper which makes the flowers more stiff when they are dry.


 the detail in this stamp image is incredible and makes these flowers look so very realistic
