More Sunflowers

Hello! I am back with more sunflower cards.  I used Distress Oxide inks to color the sunflower on both of these cards.  The top card is a digital image by Priscilla Styles from my digi file. I printed the image on watercolor paper and colored with a water brush. Added some texture to the center with Zing! Chestnut EP.  Die cut with a square die and placed on a Brown mat and Ivory card base.  The stamped sentiment is from an old MFP set. Stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Zing!Chestnut EP.

For the bottom card, I stamped a MFP Sunflower on watercolor paper and also colored with water brush and Distress Oxide inks. I splattered some ink around the image. (Tip I learned from Lisa Tilson:  lay the clear stamp back over the image before splashing.)  Added some more color beneath the leaves for a more artistic look?  Trimmed the image with a die and added a Rust mat and placed on Ivory card base with sentiment by Power Poppy.
Distress Oxide Inks used: Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Peeled Paint, Lucky Clover.
