I'm Here for you Always

I decided to have a go at an Autumn colour scheme even though it's hard to think Autumn when Spring has just sprung here and the heat makes you realise Summer is on its way. This always makes it very challenging to get into the Challenges for Fall and a snowy Christmas when we are heating up and headed for a hot summer Christmas.

So now here we are - I have used a Hero Art Stamp - NBUS and gold embossed it on a piece of creamy card stock. I have coloured using the zigs just scribbled onto acrylic block and added water to lighten the colour.

Started with orange in the middle then orange with yellow then yellow on its own. the other direction is orange with a little red added then red on its own. It didn't matter that the cardstock was not watercolour paper as very little water was used.
Finished off with Wink of Stella, check out the sparkle.

Decided to use a sentiment from another NBUS Stamp set. Love it, think it goes with the image really well. Embossed in gold. The panel was then added to a black cardbase.

I would like to enter this in a couple of challenges. 
with optional twist of thank you.

No twist with this one.

Thanks for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
