Fall Flowers 04627
My fall card today features a pretty little Autumn bouquet of flowers & wheat for the Color Challenge (CC499). I tried a technique on the flowers calledstamp etching.  I didn’t add too many little “etching” lines on the flowers today, but I like the depth they give. After coloring them, I added some gold stickles to centers of the sunflowers and orange stickles to the other 2 little flowers. A few leaf outlines were stamped w/ the rust ink, then overstamped w/ the solid leaf versions using a combo of inks & spritzing. After cutting them out, I wrinkled them so they’d look more realistic.

The argyle background was stamped w/ the peeled paint ink & the diamonds were stamped w/ the scattered straw ink, stamped one off so it wouldn’t be so dark.The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.
