Autumn Mums

Hello. I hope everyone is having a good day. Here is another Year of Flowers card. I got a little crazy today and used designer paper and masking all in one card. Ordinarily I don't do much masking, but I really wanted to make a stem with several flowers and leafs. Oh, and have I mentioned that I have a fear of DP? I am trying to overcome it.

After I stamped all the images on watercolor paper, I colored them with Marvy Markers, water color pencils and an aqua painter. Then I cut out the image and adhered it to a sponged oval.

The ink colors I used for sponging are Creamy Caramel, So Saffron, and Chocolate Chip. I used Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black, and Creamy Caramel card stock, in addition to K & Company card stock.

Gina K is having a release party tonight in the SCS forums. I'll be hanging out and stalking the poor DT until the new releases are available to purchase. I am dying to get my hands on those cookie and coffee sets. Let me know if you are there, so I can say "hi."

Have a great rest of the day!

The designer paper is pretty but your beautiful flowers and layers on the card just adds to it. No show of any fear with this card!

Your masking is wonderful as is your choice of colors & sponging. Your DP looks great!! Of course I use DP as a way of compensating-all I have to do is cut & paste and voila!! Instant success!! You make your own DP with all of your beautiful sponging & coloring!!
