Sunflower Buggies

I finally had a chance to finish this card, that I started working on last Sunday. It's been a busy week, preparing for back to school and other stuff. 
Hard to believe Summer break is over...it always goes so fast, although I can't really say they have a short summer break. I just really wish they didn't start until September, it somehow feels like Fall once school starts, and I am not ready yet for Summer to be over...

Definitely still Summertime on my blog, I have another fun summer themed Whimsy Stamps creation to show you today, using the gorgeous stamp "Sunflower Buggies" from Whimsy's Meljen's Designs collection. 

Just did some masking and inking. The flower was stamped twice, once onto my card front, then onto another white piece of card stock. This time I made coloring easy but simply inking it with my ink applicator tool and distress inks, using 3 different shades. Then I cut the flower out and adhered it onto my card front.  The little white flowers were colored using a white faber castell pitt marker. 

You can find the Whimsy Products here:

Also used:
 Neenah card stock, washi tape for masking, distress inks, stickles glitter, faber castell pitt marker
