Sunflower here comes the sun Card - Hero Arts SeptMthKit - Stencils

I have a Hero Arts Monthly Kit subscription and this is the Sept Mth Kit that includes a Sunflower stamp/die, sentiment stamps, 5 layering stencils, 4 mini inks & a mini blending brush.

One my first attempt had the Sunflowers looking too dark and not a vibrant yellow; thus looked dead. I did not give up and this is my 2nd attempt. For 1st attempt I used black ink for the stamped image. For 2nd attempt I used brown ink named root beer ink that came with the kit. For 1st attempt I used Butter Bar ink that came with the kit and the yellow was not bright to my liking. For 2nd attempt I use Lemon Drop ink and liked the brightness of it as reason it may be brighter is that it is a reactive ink.
