Anything but a card,

Hi Its my  first official week joining  Abbie's Team A at Artistic Inspirations
  This weeks challenge is anything but a card and 
our sponsor is

The winner of this weeks challenge will receive 5 digi images.

I decided to use
sunflower 1
I love sunflowers, I decided to make a wall hanging for the kitchen. I used the large size of the MDF hearts from Indigo Blu.

Which I painted with white Gesso mixed with a yellow acrylic paint,once dry I added green acrylic to the paint and using a stencil brush added it around the border. This was left to dry overnight in the morinig I added some gold giliding wax around the edge. While the heart was drying I coloured my 2 sizes of sunflowers with Pro-markers. Then I cut them all out, most were just the small flower heads but for the border I cut out the full flower. I then used "live your dreams" stamp from Visible Image and stamped in Black Stazon. Once I decided where I was placing the flowers I stuck them down with PVA glue which dries white. Once dry I  painted with clear gloss due to it being hung in the kitchen.
