Sunflowers

Evening and thanks for calling round.
Had a couple of challenges in mind when I made this card with my new Bloom Sketches from STAMPlorations. The images are really crisp and are ideal for embossing then watercolouring. So I've been playing while the builders are laying concrete in the yard and outdoor activities are somewhat curtailed!
I have also finally managed to work out how to add the watermark that my teamie from ATSM, Kylie made for me last week, to my cards. I can't believe how talented she is! Thanks again Kylie.



I used DIs to w/c the 'sunflowers' then using a mask I painted the green background in more DIs.
The Vellum strip was embossed in gold detail after stamping with a freebie from years ago.
The w/c panel was then popped up on pads.

This was made with the following challenges in mind.

Think it's CAS!

Thanks for calling by, hope you come back again soon.
