Wow – can you believe it’s September already?  A new month means a new hostess at CAS Colours & Sketches, and this time it’s Fiona.  She’s given us some lovely rich colors to work with for this week’s challenge.

I reached for a couple of my older stamp sets for my card this week.  The outline and fill stamps worked well to fit in the three colors.  I stamped the “fill” part of the flower first, and then misted it with some water so that the colors would spread a bit and give sort of an aura around the flower.  Once the cardstock was dry, I inked the outline using a different color for the blossom.  I put pieces of cardstock in all three colors together for a colorblocked mat underneath my focal piece.
