Sunflowers on a Grey Day

*This post is part of the January promotion fortnight. Remember to leave a comment to be entered
 Good morning, Kirsten here.  I used the Hobby Art Sunflowers stamp set for today's card & once again, it couldn't be simpler...........
I mixed Mango Inkadinks with gold mica powder & water in a mini spray bottle & spritzed two pieces of watercolour card..............

When they were dry I stamped one piece with the single sunflower, cutting off a piece for the sentiment, (from HA Anna's Collection - Just For You) & the other with the sunflower head, using Onyx Black Versafine ink & heat setting with clear embossing powder...............

I edged the watercolour card with a gold Krylon pen & backed each piece with black card........ 

I used kraft card, black card & orange core'dinations card for matting & layering, stuck everything to a 7x7 white card blank & added adhesive pearls.
