Here is my layout using Sunshine's Sunflower Spray Stamp

Here is the recipe for my layout
Sunshine’s Sunflower Spray
Card and Paper: Stampin’ Up whisper white and very vanilla, Bo Bunny Chocolate Dot, Color Mates Medium Coffee Brown, plus some other card stock that I don’t know the name of.
Ink: Stampin’ Up Garden Green, Old Olive, Summer Sun, So Saffron, Creamy Caramel, More Mustard and Chocolate Chip.
Embellishments: Kaiser Craft rhinestones, K&Company Adhesive Chipboard, Stampin’ Up Crystal Effects.
Other: dimensionals, double sided tape, personal trimmer, sponge dauber.
Technique: Colouring, Tearing and sponging.

Hope you like the layout. I hope you can see the sponging around the photos and also the crystal effects that I used on the sunflowers to make it look like there were raindrops on the sunflowers.

This is the stamp, you can go over to Sunshine's Stamp Store to get it uncoloured.

Thanks so much for stopping by have a wonderful day.
