Honeycomb Sunflower


Hi! I hope you are having a great day!  We're still celebrating the new Poppystamps Spring Release by showing you projects featuring the new dies and offering up a prize on every post!  

Today my project features the Boutiful Sunflower Die.  I used just the outline of the flower (there is a background die as well).    The background was created with the Memory Box Honeycomb Stencil.  I used a dauber and distress inks.  No blending that might damage the stencil, just an up and down motion - like stamping.  When I got the colors to my liking I spritzed the cardstock with a gold metallic spray.  The sunflower cut from black cardstock makes a beautiful silhouette and a sprinkle of sequins picks up the gold shimmer.
