Apparently, I am on a watercoloring kick. I really was glad to see the Celebrate Sunflowers carryover into the current Annual Catalog because I couldn’t wait to play with it again. From day one when I saw the Stitched Greenery die plate, I couldn’t wait to watercolor it.
When I first stated the project I did not plan on using the Gold and Rose Gold Metallic cardstock but when I saw the finished background and sunflower I just knew I needed to accent it with the metallic gold.
The photos don’t do the card justice. This card really shimmers and has a lot of detail. I not only embossed the sunflower image in gold embossing powder but also overlayed the metallic die piece. If you look close, you can see that I added the Encircled in Friendship die cut under the sunflower. The video shows you all of these steps in detail.
Here is a link to the Sunflowers with Gorgeous Watercoloring Technique video. There are a few tips and tricks that I recommend on the video. I would really appreciate it if you would take the time to subscribe to my blog and YouTube. I have been working hard to expand my social media presence and with your help I can continue doing that.

The first Stampin’ Up! value statement is this: we care about people first. What does that look like? Caring about people first means treating others with kindness, respect, and equal consideration. It means working together towards a common goal, helping each other through life’s challenges, and celebrating one another’s accomplishments. It means including others, even when we disagree, have contrasting life experiences, or simply see things differently. Caring about people first is our greatest strength!
