Sunflower Autumn

Today we welcome Shannon as our hostess for November at CAS Colours & Sketches.  She has given us some beautiful fall colors to work with so I just had to create another autumn card even though I need to start on my Christmas cards!

Here are the colors:

Celebrate Sunflowers is a bundle that is fast becoming a favorite.  I was first attracted to it by the dies (they are gorgeous!) but the images are wonderful as well.  This is the smaller of the images and works perfectly for a CAS card.

Using my Stamapratus I stamped the image on Whisper White Thick cardstock in Saddle Brown Stazon ink and did not remove the stamp.  I then "watercolored" the image using the ink colors and a blender pen.  Although the Stazon does not bleed or blend with water it did loose it's color a bit with the other inks on top.  So I reloaded my image in the Stamapratus and stamped it again.  This gave me the rich, vibrant brown I was looking for.

I stamped my sentiment on the card base, used a stitched square to cut out the flower and popped it up using foam dimensionals with just a bit of linen thread underneath.  A super easy card that would be perfect to send to friends this Thanksgiving!
