Sunflower Thank You Card ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     A few weeks ago my husband surprised me with boxes of stamps and craft supplies from a co-worker! This is the thank you card that I made for her, using my stamps from Red Rubber Designs.

     Except for the sentiment, which was stamped onto wood using Savvy Sayings, the rest of the stamping was embossed with Distress Embossing Powder (Walnut Stain). On the yellow background I used Speckle Background to mimic dirt. Then I used the Sunflowers stamp to emboss the sunflowers in the watering can, coloring them with Distress Inks, and painting the watering can with silver paint. The larger sunflowers were embossed with the My Sunshine stamp set, and also colored with Distress Ink. For some more texture, I decided to add some brown beads to the centers.

     I took my design inspiration from this sketch used for the October Card Challenge @ from Viva La Verve Sketches.

     I'm also entering this into the following challenges:
