Here's my entry...
The stamp set is PTI's Friends 'Til the End , one of my favorite sets of all time! I stamped the center flower first with Distress Antique Linen and then masked it off and stamped the smaller two flowers, also masking before stamping the leaves. I used Tim Holtz watercolor paper and Distress inks to paint the flowers- Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge and a touch of Barn Door. The leaves are Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn with a bit of Forest Moss.
After everything dried I put spots of black Wink of Stella and some white gel pen to look more like I would think a sunflower would actually look, also made a nice shine on the center. I just so loved that watercolor class! Wish they'd do another... would keep me on task :)
The card is for our son and daughter-in-law, John and Erica, for their tenth annie! She loves sunflowers and I couldn't help but think of them when I was watercoloring these flowers.
