Allsorts 12th Birthday

 I made a very artsy card today to celebrate Allsorts Challenge 12th Birthday. This is not my usual style, but I wanted to play with my Gelatos and Caran d'Ache which haven't been touched for a long while.

I stamped the sunflower with Distress Inks initially and coloured with the the crayons and Zigs.
I stamped it again and partially embossed the image. Then I coloured the background.  
The paper is Canson Acrylic Paper, which works beautifully with the crayons.

Stamp: Penny Black Sunglow

I'm sharing at the following challenges:-
