OK, OK... enough whining! Here's what I came up (and as you can see when you visit the CTD blog, several of us were inspired by the sunflowers in the photo!)
I started out partially stamping the BG Fine Chevron background from My Favorite Things, then heat embossing with detail white embossing powder. Then I did a water color wash on my background using my Zig Clean Color markers, and then die cut the panel with the Blueprints 11 Die-Namics. Then I used one of MY favorite stamp sets from My Favorite Things, the LJD Splendid Sunflower! (*gasp!* I think it's been... *gulp* RETIRED!) I die-cut my flower with the matching Die-Namics set, then used my MISTI to stamp the sunflower using Lemon Chiffon hybrid ink and added some depth by coloring the petals with my Copic markers. The leaves were stamped in Jellybean Green hybrid ink, and the flower center was done with Chocolate Brown and Hot Fudge hybrid inks. I added the sentiment (from LJD Peaceful Wildflowers) in heat-embossed white on a strip of Steel Blue card stock. Finally, I added some ink spatters to the background with a combination of water and Steel Grey dye ink as well as some MIX-ables Steel Shimmer mist. The water colored panel was mounted to a piece of Steel Grey card stock, then mounted to a Sweet Tooth card stock base.
