I have this thing where when I see a beautifully detailed botanical image I have to stamp it in black on kraft! I think the lack of colouring showcases the stunning detail. Also, I thought I’d mix things up a little with a shaped card which are always fun! I’ve linked all supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

The details in the centre of the sunflower are amazing – all those little seeds! The lack of colour shows all the detail, however, the pop of orange with the gold splatter also say autumn to me. Just the hint of colour is all it takes.
- Simon Says Stamp Sunflower Background
- Simon Says Stamp Clean Line Gratitude
- Simon Says Stamp Nested Oval Dies
STEP BY STEP HOW TO
- Stamp the Sunflower Background in Versafine Onyx Black ink on Neenah Desert Storm card.
- Splatter with gold paint, white gouache and perfect pearls.
- Die-cut with a Nested Oval die.
- Die-cut two larger ovals from Ivory card. Score one of the ovals an inch from the top and attach to the other oval to form a card base.
- Attach the sunflower panel with foam adhesive to the front.
- Stamp a greeting from the Clean Lines Gratitude set in clear embossing ink on Black card. Stamp a coordinating sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black on Ivory card.
- Trim the two sentiment pieces. Add a strip of Burnt Orange card to the black piece and trim the left side at an angle.
- Add the sentiment pieces to the card front with foam tape ensuring the larger piece overlaps the edge of the card slightly.
- Accent with Nuvo Golden Ovals.
