I have used some new paint fusion stamps from Sheena Douglass for my project;

I've made a card that has a little box for 5 tealights on the side.  The tealights I had were sunflowers so a little bigger than normal so I could only fit in 4.  I have the new sunflower stamps for paint fusin so I used these to match the tealights and painted them onto a crackled mountboard tag.  I added some ribbon and layered up some coredinations card stock as a base.  I used an embossing folder from Darice to emboss the flowers on the yellow card.
It's a really simple card but quite effective.
