Hey everyone. I sat down to make a card this morning and the morning just flew by. I really didn't think it was going to take me that long - and the card wasn't even complicated.
The sketch challenge on SCS was a really simple one today, so I decided to play. I pulled out a new set that I received free in a random draw for a challenge I participated in for Gina K. It's called Signs of Autumn and has a nice variety of images relating to fall, which is a season that I really love. I decided to use the sunflower image, although I have a tendency to make my flowers something other than what the stamp might indicate. I colored the image using SU markers, added some sponging and doodling around the edges and mounted that on black.
The card base is dusty durango (I think - didn't check, and SU's colors lately have been close to, but not quite, another color in the palette. I used to know every one without double checking, but not anymore with all the in colors that are only around for a year. ). I stamped the maple leaf randomly with dusty durango ink and sponged and doodled the edges with chocolate chip.
The bar across the bottom is some designer paper from a JoAnn's stack, mounted on black. I stamped and colored each of the flowers, then cut them out and added some chocolate chip on the tips of the petals.
The sentiment is from Think Happy Thoughts (SU). I wanted to use the same flower again on that, so that meant one more to color and cut out. I think that's where the morning went - cutting out flowers.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit today. I hope the rest of your day is filled with wonder.
