Sunflower Side-Step

A friend came over last week to make cards and wanted to try the side step technique. Here's a fall card I created using Heartfelt Creations sunflowers and some Word Art Wednesday Scripture art.
I stamped my sunflowers on watercolor paper and embossed them in copper embossing powder.
I colored the flowers with Distress Crayons, blending the hues together with a damp finger. Here's the colors I used from lightest to darkest: Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, Rusty Hinge.  The center is lightly colored over with Vintage Photo Distress Crayon.

Supplies and tools:
Watercolor Paper, Sunflower Stamps (Heartfelt Creations), Versamark Watermark ink, Copper Embossing Powder (Zing), Distress Crayons (Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo, Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint, Pine Needles), Word Art Wednesday Scripture Art, Script Background Stamp (Stampin Up), Walnut Stain Distress Ink, Lace, Burlap String, Button
