Sunflower Blues

Hello.  Welcome.  Sometimes knowing what you want to do is only half the battle.  Finding time isn't always easy.  I knew I wanted to use this sunflower for the Calling All Sistahs challenge.  It just so matched the picture inspiration and I think it looks very cool in the teal tones.  

My background panel is a brusho mop up piece, die cut with a stitch rectangle die and mounted on a black base card.  I die cut Poppystamps Bountiful Sunflower and used it as a stencil to colour the negative spaces with Cloud and Cadet blue Promarkers.  Then I coloured the sunflower with the Cadet blue marker and added it to the card.  The sentiment is from Unity, stamped with blue dye ink.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
