Magnolia Down Under Challenge#7

Hi again.

I decided to try out another challenge!! This time, I popped over to the Magnolia Down Under Challenge Blog where this week's challenge is "Sepia".

This is probably not a colour scheme I would have come up with myself, but I'm really pleased with how my card's turned out.
I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dye to stamp my Tilda image and then bled out the colour with my water brush - a new technique for me!! I used Marvy LePlume Water Colour Pens to highlight the sunflower.
Everything else I used is from my stash.
Hope you like it :-)

Beautiful job on the challenge - those sunflowers add just the right touch of colour. Love the way you've done Tilda - simple yet so effective.
Thanx for playing along at MDUC - hope to see you again.
