A Card of Many Challenges

Hello!   Looking at this card on the screen,  I think I may have over done the splattering but I guess I was trying to fill up the background.  In making this card I was thinking of a clean and simple one layer card with water coloring, fall colors, and  some splatter.  What you see is what I got playing with those elements.
The MFP Sunflower was stamped with Distress Ink on watercolor paper and then painted using only  Distress Inks smooshed on acrylic blocks using a water brush. The sentiment was stamped with Distress Ink also.

Challenges:
One-Layer Simplicity: Challenge #10 Turning to fall
Simon Wednesday: Simon says use watercolors
Less Is More: Week 192 Color Challenge is Autumn's Bounty

CAS-ology : Word is splatter.....may have too much splatter to be Clean?





Virginia's View: Challenge #8 Clean and Simple. Inspired by the sunflower in the graphic.

Supplies:
Stamps: Mark Finest Papers Bring You the Sun set

I often have to remind myself that less is more! I think your splatter works perfectly as a background to your gorgeous sunflower! So glad you joined us at CASology this week!
