The Card Concept Challenge #21 - Country and Sunflowers

This weeks challenge at The Card Concept is based on a theme:

Country and Sunflowers

Isn't this a lovely inspiration photo? Checked tablecloth, Natural twine and Golden sunflowers.  How about that painted Mason jar? Yep..Feelin' a little bit Country!  

For my FREESTYLE/COLLAGE card I used a masking and heat emboss technique with a new set from STAMPlorations called Bloom Sketches. 

The filler leaves/branches and what-not are from Tim Hotlz Nature's Discovery and Hero Arts' Fern and Humming bird. 

After ebossing all the flowers I sponged Scattered Straw Distress ink around the edges and background. Then I watercolored the blooms with more Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed,Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon...with just a touch of Mowed Lawn and Shabby Shutters.
I masked the blooms once more and stamped all the extra foliage with PTI Dark Chocolate ink and Memento Dessert Sand.

For the Hero Arts/Sizzix Framelits butterflies I Painted Heidi Swapp GOLD Color Shine on the wings as well as making some splatters and highlights on the Blooms. 

Hope you are inspired to pop over to THE CARD CONCEPT  and see all the Team's amazing cards and PLAY along! Remember all STYLES of cards are welcome:)

Thanks for stopping by!
