Close, but not quite

Debra Burgin Pale sunflowerI over-scheduled myself the past few weeks, with not much breathing room!  So yesterday I was cleaning, repacking supplies for Saturday’s event, and muscling through some garden work (reshaping and edging a bed with bricks).

When I was designing cards for camp this month, I wanted to be sure to use the sketch challenge in my October newsletter — this one 2013 Octoberat Fab Friday.  And I just had to use the Sunflower stamp one last time before turning my attention completely to winter.

However, I rejected the card above because I thought it was too pale.  I’m much happier with the final version, which I’ll share with you tomorrow.

I’ve been doing a lot of sponging lately.  I love the slow process, gradually building color intensity.  Need some sponging help?  Check out my tips from a few years ago.
