Amazing!



 Yes! It's amazing that I have a 3 day weekend off work! I started off the time with a quick card for two challenges: Just Us Girls with a "Farm Fresh" photo inspiration and the Freshly Made Sketches layout. My background splatters were made by wetting yellow and red watercolor pencils, picking up the color on a brush, then tapping it to drip the water onto the CS.  To keep with a rustic farm theme, I used the barbed wire Die-Namics by MFT and some jute twine.

STAMPS: Splendid Sunflower (MFT), Label Love (Altenew).
PAPER: White (PTI), DP (?)
INK: Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Baked Brown Sugar, Versafine Onyx Black.
ACCESSORIES: Sunflower Die-Namics (MFT), Wire Fence Die-Namics (MFT), Jute twine.

Nothing says summer like a Sunflower and yours is gorgeous. I like all the extras you added to your design like the barb wire and linen thread. Great job!
