CAS Watercolor August Challenge

Hi there! All of Loll & Bonnie's Challenges are real favorites of mine, so once again I'm playing along with their CAS Watercolor Challenge. I rummaged through my stash and found an old sunflower stamp, and I think it's perfect for watercoloring (even though it's not labeled and I have no idea which company makes it).

I started by embossing the sunflower with white EP on watercolor paper, then colored the petals, stems, and leaves with Koi Watercolors. I embossed the sentiment, added a few sequins, and mounted the panel onto a white card base...and that was it!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate your visits and all of your lovely comments ~

Stamps: Sunflower (unknown); MFT Brushstroke Expressions (sentiment)
Die: MFT - Stitched A2 Rectangle Set 1
Ink: Koi Watercolors; Versamark
Misc: Stampendous - Detail White EP; Altenew - Rose Gold EP; Pretty Pink Posh - Sparkly Clear Sequin Mix

Nothing says Summer like a sunflower, Barb! This one [no matter who makes it] is a stunner! Your placement, and water-coloring technique = perfection!

Oh this is a fab sunflower - they remind me that summer time is fleeting. I love the yellow and the white embossing. Fabulous.

Love the soft yellow of your sunflower. Nice to have the white embossing so it doesn't take away from the softness. Thanks so much for joining us at CAS Watercolour!
