How to Use Paint-a-Flower Sunflower without.. "Painting"!

 Hello friends!

I hope this post finds you well. I am loving the current Paint-a Flower Sunflower. It has beautiful lines, details and depth, not to mention that the composition of this stamp set is gorgeous.

I am sharing my 2nd version without painting it. I hope that you can also extend your use of outline stamps. This post will be a good example for that.

I took out the Gradient Card Stock and paired them up with Sunflowers. The strips of paper were then carefully laid out. I glue them onto a thin piece of card stock.

I then trimmed it to the size I want (4"x 5 1/2"). With MISTI, I started to stamp the sunflower image.

you are my happy -001

It is very important to use a MISTI or any stamp positioner for stamping the larger outline image. There might be a few spots that may not get stamped. This can be avoided with a stamp positioner.

Here are the two versions with the same stamp set. If you not have tried the paper-piecing version? 
I hope that you would give this a go!

you are my happy -002

Oh yes, I love the use of color strips on your card. It's a natural for sunflowers. So clever and beautiful.
