On the last Tuesday of each month the teapotters tickle each other with a card and some goodies! In January I was tickled by Mary aka Octoberbabe. She sent me an envelope full of different die cuts!
While looking through it today I thought that two of the larger yellow flowers she sent would make awesome sunflowers. She cut the centers in this adorable brown polka-a-dot and as soon as I saw this I knew I had brown checkered dp which I thought would compliment the flowers well.
To make my sunflowers, I sponged calypso coral around the center and then added tiny streaks of close to cocoa. I used a paint brush to roll each petal to give it a little extra depth. The centers were added with a 1/2" pop dot. I stamped the stems and leaves on scrap white, added my frame and sentiment and then used additional pop dots to place the sunflowers. Mounted on a close to cocoa base. TFL
