Simon Says Challenge - No Designer Paper

Over at the Simon Says Challenge this week the topic is "no designer paper".  This card I have made certainly fits that bill.

For my card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Sunflower Night" and I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Mustard Seed distress ink.

Onto the papers I have used.

The card at the back has been put through an embossing folder.

The next backing paper I have used a piece of watercolour card, inked areas with Tim Holtz's Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade distress ink and spritzed water onto the card and left overnight to thoroughly dry.  I then brushed over an anti-static pad before stamping various leaves down the left hand side.  I then used some Dutch Doobadoo texture paste and mixed with some orange mica and pressed through a leaf border mask and a small dot/large dot mask I made myself with my Crop-o-dile.

For the orange and cream mounts I have put the card through a hessian and a leaf embossing folder.

I have finished the card off with a flower (stamped and die-cut using a Sheena Douglass stamp and die), button, lots of punched out leaves, seed beads added to the centres of the sunflowers and a ribbon bow.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
