Glue Gun flowers

This is my first Stampotique Challenge but knowing me, I will not work out how to link or miss the deadline.

I created some Rudbeckia flowers and leaves on my craft mat with my glue gun.

Next I used them as stencils and sprayed Dylusion inks through them.

I removed my flowers etc and then began to work on the flowers and leaves, filling them in with inks. Then I used white and black pen and coloured the flower centres with brown pen.
I stamped my characters around the flowers, masking parts of the flowers to give the feeling that they were peeping out from behind them. I highlighted them with white pen and finished off with a sentiment.
i enjoyed this challenge and found the glue gun experience easier than I thought.
