CAS Colours and Sketches #171.....

Hello everyone: I have another card made with my brand new Power Poppy set called Sunny Harvest and I will submit it to the CAS Colors and Sketches #171 sketch challenge and the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #191, here is my card.


This was a quick and easy card to create, I just love this Sunflowers and Chinese Lanterns sprigs.  I stamped them onto a panel of Canson water color paper with Versafine Onix Black ink, I love the crisp image I get every time with it. I colored this sprigs of flowers with SU markers and the aqua painter and then, I sponged Hello Honey around them, I love this soon to be retired SU color, it's truly rich and gorgeous.  The sentiment from the same set is also stamped with Hello Honey.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


I stamped the sentiment and another sprig with Tangelo Twist, this color will also retire soon. I love the deep, rich orange shade and, when I water color with it, it softens beautifully. 
Here is the banners that inspired my card.

 
Thank you for stopping by today, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

  1. Pretty ! I agree with you about Hello Honey in regard to it`s rich complimentary shade . It is a bit more subtle than So Saffron . I like your background shading that frames your flowers .

  10. Thank you Bobby, I'm always a bit nervous when I'm sponging ink on my cards, I don't like those lines you sometimes get with the tool.
