Sunflowers

I made a few of these simple easel cards, all similar, as there are some birthdays coming up and one of my stamping group friends loves sunflowers. She doesn't blog, so I'm safe showing this in advance of her birthday.
I coloured some glossy card with alcohol inks and blending fluid. I used Butterscotch, Sunshine Yellow and Sunset Orange and there was already some remains of other colours on the felt, from another session, which added to the effect. I then stamped sunflower images ( Flora 5 by Simple Expressions) with black Stazon ink. 
The centre was embellished with some black accent beads with a few gold and orange ones as highlights.
We need a bit of sunshine after all the rain we've had of late!
Thanks for the visit and don't forget it's WOYWW tomorrow.

Looks great, Jo and that image would work really well with the embossing resist, wouldn't it? I forget about that one, lol.

You'll get one of the Consolation B Candy prizes, btw but hope it's okay to bring it to Stamp Club? If you're not going, please let me know?
