I was watching "Under the Tuscan Sun" today on a movie channel and was inspired to try this stamp and use my chalk to color it. I used some heavy duty yellow paper. It is almost like watercolor paper, I think. This really turned out bright - a lot brighter than anything else I have every done with chalk. I kept tweaking it until I was finally satisfied. I cut around some of the petals to bend them out a bit and give the sunflower some deminension. I added the twine as it just needed something else but it needed to be rustic.
