Autumn and Splatters


I'm having a change from poppies, and going back to sunflowers, for a few challenges.  First up is Fusion:


Next is One Layer Simplicity: Turning to Fall


Also Virginia's View - Clean and Simple



And here's one challenge I can't miss out on: Casology - Splatter!


I inked the sunflower from Bloom Sketches in Antique Linen Distress Ink, then sloshed and rolled some yellows, olive and rusty hinge onto the image, and added splatters (yay!).  I added a few falling petals and painted in a stem, then stamped the sentiment down the stem.
