Even though we moved into our new house way over a year ago, I still haven't unpacked all my craft stuff!! (Yes, I have way too much stuff!) So I was going through some boxes and came across a bunch of stamps I forgot I had! This sunflower image is from Penny Black and I got really excited when I found it because I could color with my Copics and do a bit of paper tole!
The little bee is from My Favorite Things. It's in the Bundles of Bouquets set and I think it's just the cutest little thing!
I stamped the image 3 times to get all the layering I wanted. You can see from the close-up picture that I popped up the whole flower head (and offset it so it looks like the flower has more petals), and then just the center. I did just a tiny bit of shaping for even more dimension - curled the edges of the top layer of petals and then made the center somewhat rounded.
It's a little hard to see, but I also popped up the top and bottom rims of the pot. For those, I just put a few layers of scrap cardstock underneath so they wouldn't stick up too much.
And then I put the entire thing on foam tape so it would float over the dotted background (sorry for over using the Swiss Dots background but I just adore the way it looks!!).
Other materials used: white cardstock - Georgia Pacific; yellow cardstock - Stampin' Up!; Black Graphite Brilliance ink - Tsukineko; Copic markers and clear Spica glitter pen (on the bee wings)
