Passionately Artistic

Our Challenge at Passionately Artistic is all things summer. Sunflowers are such sunny flowers so I'm using and old Penny Black image today. I love this old border image that is so versatile. The image is water colored and attached to the navy mat. The sentiment is punched and attached to the Spellbinder Label. Raffia seems so right with sunflowers but I gave the last of mine to a friend so had to use the navy satin ribbon.
The center of the yellow is embossed with a dotted swiss folder. I cut out a couple layers of petals and added a little ink shading. Then drew, cut out and water colored the center and leaves. I used a button to lift up the center then foam dotted the sunflower on.
