Penny Bennington: Floriculture on text paper

I love the look of flowers stamped onto text paper and have made this card using the sunflowers from Floriculture stamped onto a scrap of a vintage dictionary page. I colored the flowers with colored pencils and stamped and cut out an additional big flower, snipped the petals to fluff them, and added it with foam tape. I also inked the seam binding with Distress Inks in antique linen and dried marigold. Here's a close-up of the stamping:
If you prefer a more muted look to your text, you can dry brush it to fade the words before stamping. I used a mix of gesso and Titan Buff acrylic paint.
Hope you have a great day!
