Sunny Sunflowers

Hey, Junkies! It's Ro again and I've been playing with some awesome stamps! And today, it's all about shine!

I used one of the new releases this month, Sunflower Duo (S805). I absolutely adore this stamp and it's versatility. I also used Floral Dot (S803) and Typewriter Set (SS064). They all played so nicely together!

This card started with a simple A2 card base in a brown cardstock.  For the first layer, I selected a raisiny colored cardstock and, using some Versamark, stamped the Floral Dot background. I selected a pot of Perfect Pearls (Gold) and brushed it all over the stamped image. I trimmed it down slightly and attached it to the card base.

For the next step, I stamped Sunflower Duo on some white cardstock, again using Versamark, but this time I embossed it with some gold embossing powder. Using some Luminarte Mica Pigment Paint (I've had these for ages and still love them!), I added some color to the stamped image. I then fussy-cut the image and mounted it to the card using foam tape. The sentiment from the Typewriter Set was stamped on gold cardstock using Versamark and black embossing powder. The image was trimmed down into three blocks and attached to the card with foam tape.  A little bit of Stickles in the center of the flowers for a little extra twinkle, and the card is complete.

Just look how shiny this card is (IRL it is glimmering!). I'm loving it!
