Farm Fresh!

Happy Thursday!  I have a card to share today using my Simon Says Stamps August card kit.  

I am playing along with a few blog challenges.  I am using the sketch from The Paper Players, watercoloring from the  Happy Little Stampers, and tic tac toe from the Paper Craft Crew.  


I chose to go straight down the middle with the tic tac toe. 
I used designer papers from DCWV, designer choice was to watercolor, and the rustic is the "farm fresh" jar of flowers.

 For my card I combined patterns from DCWV Textiles paper pad.  I did add the striped patter paper from PTI Hawaiian Shores Color Collection.  I stamped the image from the SSS Kit using the Mandy's Flowers stamp set.  

I stamped the image onto Bristol smooth watercolor paper using versamark and white embossed.  I colored it with my Arteza Watercolor Real Brush Pens.  I did not add an additional sentiment just left it as a neutral card with the rustic "farm fresh" jar with flowers being the focal point. 


I added my panel to a top folding PTI select white card stock base.  I finished with a few clear sequins.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
