Little Black Card

I am so digging the oranges and yellows of the season, aren't you?  My dahlias and susans are still going strong except for one which was never lively anyway, poor thing.  I wanted to do something a bit different than what I've seen out in blogland with similarly placed flowers so I used the sentiment and enamel dots to create "fabric."  I would totally wear this.  Can't you picture it as a dress (think Grace Kelly) with bold black accessories?  Love!

  1. Stamped the flowers with Versamark then embossed with white
  2. Watercolored the flowers using Distress Inks
  3. Curved the sentiment on my block then stamped a few times
  4. Added tiny black dots of Enamel Accents

The Details:  Black Enamel Accents, Avery Elle So Happy sentiment, Stampendous Zinnia, Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper, Distress Inks, Stampendous Detail Fine White Embossing Powder, Recollections black 110 lb cardstock, Versamark

I'm entering this in Keep It Simple #50 Three, Top Tip Tuesday Fav Color Combo, CAS on Sunday #44 Emboss It, Simon Says Wednesday Use Watercolors, AAA Cards #24 Autumn Colors, Virginia's View #8 CAS
