Autumn Flowers

Happy Saturday!

In the last couple of days we've been feeling a change coming. The wind has picked up, the trees have really been changing colors and the air is much cooler this morning. I DO love fall, but I don't want to think about what's next! *SIGH*

So, instead of thinking about snow, cold and the long winter months ahead, I thought I'd create a card with some autumn flowers. I'm definitely not ready to give up putting flowers on my cards just yet!

I took out a bunch of Distress Paints again - placing them on my craft sheet, spritzing them with a bit of water and swooshing my watercolor paper into the inks. I always love the result 'cause ya never know what you're gonna get!

I stamped the SSS Whimsical Flowers onto patterned paper and then inked them up with different colors of Distress Inks. I also added a few white paint splatters and some white Enamel Accents to the centers. The sentiment is from Hero Arts - a wonderful set called, Made With Love.

Since I used some different color mediums on this card, I thought I'd enter it into the Moxie Fab World's Color Media Challenge. 

Okay, I'm off to get some yard work done before it gets too cold around here. Lots of dead flowers and veggies to pull, plus trimming down some of the bushes and plants. 

Enjoy your Saturday and thanks for stopping by! :)

Lots of Dots Thanks

Hi there!

Just a quick post tonight. I've been having a blast with the Lots of Dots stamp set from Simon Says Stamp! It is just so fun to play with! Here's my latest card using it, along with some of the Memento Luxe Inks.

I also used the SSS Thanks stamp set and matching die. I thought adding some white enamel dots would be fun too!

Thanks for your visit - it is always so appreciated! Hope everyone has a good weekend! :)
