Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Hot Summer Colours

It's the first Saturday of the month...so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...and this month the theme is:

'Hot Summer Colours'

We are sponsored for this challenge by:

Prize - a $20 voucher

I've used a stamp that to my shame I haven't inked up in years...it's called 'Sundail'...which I had to double check as it always looks like a typo to me! I stamped it several times using Versamark ink, then heat embossed it in white. I then blended yellow and orange Distress Inks (Scattered Straw, Wild Honey & Spiced Marmalade) over the top. I coloured the flowers using more Distress Inks (Fired Brick & Festive Berries) and a waterbrush. I doodled some dots around the edges of the flowers, and some borders using a white gel pen, then added a Hero Arts sentiment.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
