Color Throwdown

Are you ready for the last Color Throwdown Challenge of August already?! Monika has picked this gorgeous sunflower photo for us and I was ever so happy to use the blue/yellow/green colors for an old fave image that I've had for years!

My card base is 5" square and I arranged the layout based on the current Retrosketches Challenge. After coloring with Copics, I fussy cut the flower and popped it with foam dots over the splattered rectangle.

STAMPS: Sunflower II (Rubber Stampede); Wonderfully Made (Verve) - sentiment.
PAPER: Family Ties (Pebbles), Pacific Point (SU), X-Press It Blending Card, White (PTI).
INK: Pacific Point (SU), Crushed Curry(SU), Memento Tuxedo Black.
ACCESSORIES: Label punch by SU, Button, Stitched Rectangle die by Lil Inker Designs, Notebook edge punch by SU, Copics.
