(Orange, Brown & Yellow)

"Sunflower Seeds"

So, first reaction to these colors was "Oh no!" But luckily my new stamps I was able to make a fall card. Whew! :)

These colors are alot more vivid in person! But anyways...card base is orange, and I added green and brown as background colors. I know green wasn't one of the colors, but it needed something... This paper is all scraps from last year when I was making fall stuff, so no idea where it's from.
The sunflower stamp is one of Just For Fun's "new arrivals," G3430 Fall Floral. I stamped it twice using (Memento) Tuxedo Black, then colored it with Copic's *list at bottom. I colored all sunflowers twcie, since I cut out one set and added them using pop-up dots, to my card. "Fuzzy acents" are Flower Soft in Ivory (wheat) and Nut Brown (sunflower centers).
Sunflower seed bag is a brown paper bag that I cut to size, glued a baggy with sunflower seeds inside, and then sewed around it, to keep everything in place.
I added ribbon, hemp and a tag that I drew to the bag, 'cause it was a little plain. I used (JFF) UMS7000 Alphabet sheet to add "25 cents" to tag.
For my sign, I wrote "Sunflower Seeds," then airbrushed it with Copics and added some brads.

I am still not in the mood for Fall yet...but making this card was fun.

*Copics used: E29 Burnt Umber, YR09 Chinese Orange, Y06 Yellow, YG09 Lettuce Green & YG41 Pale Green
