Freshly Made Sketches

Jen B has a great new layout for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge! I finally broke into a pack of Bazzill 6x6 papers with all black and white patterns.  Love to add a pop of color to black and white - always a clean and classy card look IMO.  I die cut the sunflower and leaves from Canson 90 lb. watercolor paper then stamped with Tim Holtz distress inks.  For the flower, I stamped on Mustard Seed first then patted some Spiced Marmelade around the edges.  I spritzed one time with a light mist of water and stamped it.  For the center, I stamped Rusty Hinge then Brushed Corduroy.  Peeled Paint ink was used on the leaves.  By misting the image, it gives it a water colored appearance.  I finished it off with this fun font sentiment by Simon Says Stamp.

STAMPS: Splendid Sunflower (My Favorite Things), Stripe Greetings (SSS).
PAPER: Licorice 6x6 pad (Bazzill Basics Paper), White (PTI), Canson watercolor paper.
INK: Black Licorice hybrid ink by MFT, TH distress inks (listed above).
ACCESSORIES: Corner chomper, Border Die-Namics by MFT, Splendid Sunflower Die-Namics by MFT.
