Christine's project part 2

Christine again,
With the sunflower stamped I went on to create a background.

The background piece was sprayed with Citrus Yellow and Citrus Orange in the centre and dried with a heat gun, then trimmed to size.
I mounted the sunflower from my first post onto this to create a topper.
The topper was mounted onto another piece of card which had been coloured round the edges with the darkest colour on the Sunshine Yellows triple ink pad and double-embossed. In the single colours this is Tangerine Tart.
The card background was made using the Triple Sunshine Yellows inkpad and the large Harlequin Pattern stamp. A spare strip of card was stamped with the English Garden words stamp (and the Sunshine Yellows again) and the two edges were coloured and embossed.

The card was assembled with some brown ribbon and a couple of sunflower buttons.

I hope you are enjoy the projects as much as we have enjoyed making them.
Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win the sunflower stamps from Lynnda.
