Good morning!
I hope your week is going well... 
The heatwave seems to be over here now and cooler temperatures are making it much more comfortable.. 

Today's card is for CAS Watercolour Challenge... I was fortunate enough to win last months challenge with the watercolour splash technique and this month's challenge is Sunflower

We have a field just near our house and this year there are row upon row of sunflowers! They look so beautiful and in all the years I have lived here that field has never had a flower on it!

Unfortunately I only have one stamp that resembles a sunflower, it's actually a large daisy by Stampendous so use your imagination haha!

I first stamped and embossed the image using my own mix of gold and silver embossing powder
then pulled out my Zigs to loosely paint it with. 
Normally I reach for my Gansai Tambi paints or distress inks when painting and the poor Zigs have just been left on the shelf... Now I'm itching to use them again

I love the yellow/orange colour I got using the Zigs - It just looked like sunshine so I die cut the word 'sunshine' from the centre and inlaid a second white die cut into the space.

So that's my sunflower... sort of

Enjoy your day and thanks so much for stopping by
