Today's guest designer on The Angel Company's Savvy Projects Blog is the FABULOUS Barb Foster! She is featuring a beautiful set called Sunshine. I knew I wanted this set as soon as I saw it in the Fall Supplement, but just recently got it (THANKS Amy!) So here is what I have been up to with these stamps... 
I kept this card very simple... the sunflower is so pretty, I just didn't think it needed a lot of extra stuff! I stamped it with Palette Burnt Umber, and colored it with Watercolor Pencils... this one is so much fun to color!  Can you see the distressed edges on the Saguaro Cardstock? I don't have one of those nifty paper distressing tools, so I used an old key! I just rubbed the edges of the cardstock into a notch in the key! Works like a charm!   
I originally started out to make a scrapbook page here, but as it came together, I decided to keep it simple, and use it to frame a photo. I had the perfect picture too... these are my daughters posing for me last fall wearing sunflower barrettes in their hair. I used my Scor-Pal on the Kraft Cardstock to create the diamond pattern, then used a Hydra Sponge to rub Versamagic Jumbo Java Ink all over the cardstock. This really makes the texture stand out! I used Brown Cardstock for the base, and also for matting the photo. The sunflower is stamped with Palette Burnt Umber Ink, and colored with Watercolor Pencils. After coloring, I cut it out, and used Pop Dots to attach it to the photo. Now all I need is a frame!
Thanks for visiting! I would love to know what you think! And don't forget to check out Barb Foster's creations on the Savvy Projects Blog... she will WOW you!

I love your card! The olive green distressed cardstock and gingham ribbon are PERFECT with the sunflower image. Not too much, just enough.
