Garden of Sunflowers

Hello!  I have been playing with Sunflowers, on paper that is.  I did not realize that I had so many great digital images of this flower in my files.  On watercolor paper,  I printed out this digi from Two for Tuesday which I do not think is posting any more.  I colored the image with a water brush using Distress Oxide Inks Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Lucky Clover, Vintage Photo, and Walnut Stain. I edged the image with a mat of Rust CS and placed on a Ivory card base.  Stamped a Power Poppy sentiment with Vintage Photo.  I like this image so much that I am printing and coloring a larger one to frame.

Oh, my gosh, Theresa, I have this same image and it's what came to mind for this challenge as I haven't colored it yet. Too many things going on to keep up! I love seeing it all colored up and looking pretty on your card. Sunflowers are so beautiful and cheerful!
