Summer Sunflowers

Oh my....isn't this coordinating set of Summer Sunflowers from Graciellie Design's just gorgeous?!?!
I had so much fun creating with these stamps and papers!

To create my sunflowers I printed six of the single bloom in varying sizes on yellow cardstock. I fussy cut each flower (and between each petal) and inked the edges with distress inks. I layered tehm together for more dimension and added ground coffee to the centers.  The vines were cut from green and blue card stock and inked with three colors of distress oxide (below). I spritzed them with water and heat set so the color would blend and sink in.
