Autumn Sunflowers

Hello Everyone!

For today I will be playing along with the Cupcake Inspirations and Double D Challenges. I enjoyed their color palette; especially the brown! Here is my card for today, enjoy.

This design was done using a multistep process. First I stamped the flower image and embossed it in white. I then took bleach and brushed it all around the flowers and leaves. They became a soft yellow color. Perfect! Now the area was ready for color. I added color using watercolor pens without diluting it with water. This gives the panel and bright and vivid look. 

It may be hard to see that I die-cut the word 'hugs'. I then built it up using multiple layers of the same die-cut. I think it doesn't distract from the beautiful scenery. Plus, if the recipient couldn't see the die-cut word right away I added the 'for you' sentiment.
Sunny sunflowers always seem to cheer the recipient. This one is going to someone very special who is fighting cancer and having quite a difficult time.
 Entering Challenges:
