I love sunflowers! They are so majestic, and they herald my favorite season, fall. And if that weren't enough, their seeds are one of my favorite snacks. So, for the Penny Black challenges, I chose Sunny, #2669K from my Penny Black flower stamps to make my card.....
I used chalk inks to stamp the flower onto black card stock, then touched it up with my Faber Castell polychromos colored pencils, and highlighted here and there with my Signo white gel pen. the thank you sentiment is from my stash, and is unmounted, so I do not know whose it is.
A little layering, and some hand drawn squiggles and dots along the edge finish off the card for today.
I'm hoping fall hangs on a little longer here in upstate New York. Today was cold and blustery, and rain is in the forecast. I'm just hoping none of that nasty white stuff comes down with it! I want a few more walks along the river trail, and a few more days tending my fall garden needs.
