STAMPlorations Sketch #21

Hi there everyone. Well call me silly because I thought I had scheduled this post to go live 10 hours ago but turns out I hadn't even written the bloody thing... So sorry, Shery!!

Over at STAMPlorations, we have a brand new sketch for you and it is a ripper.

I had so many thoughts go through my head for this one and here is what I came up with 

I stamped, masked and embossed the sunflowers and then used a cotton bud to apply distress inks. I then added a bit of ink to a scrunched up baby wipe and swiped it over the panel to give it that sun beam streaky look.

I embossed some strips of paper and then popped everything up with foam dots. This isn't exactly how I thought this would turn out and I nearly chucked it in the bin but it started to grow on me. 

I have used Bloom Sketches: Sunflower Artsy for this card.

I was once again inspired by the Fusion Challenge where this time I used just the photo

Thanks so much for looking xx
