This card was a challenge to myself to use these huge flowers, that I had to buy !! So I bought them because they were beautiful, but have been at a loss as to how to use them. This sunflower reminds me of my cousin Matt and my pap, they were always trying to see who could grow the biggest sunflowers in the garden !!
The center of the flower is a scalloped circle cut out with spellbindes, then embossed with a Cuttlebug circle embossing template. The very center is a jumbo brad in an undesirable color, so I sponged on brown craft ink, covered with clear embossing powder and heated. The e.p. is to hold the ink in place,it will wipe off without it ! Then I painted on some brown Sticles (a must have new color !) . The paper is Melow by Basic Grey.
