Market Street Stamps September Block Party

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! We're having a block party at Market Street Stamps this weekend and we would love to have you come and join in the fun! 
For the party I made a card using the new set "Growth" by Stephanie Washburn using an image and sentiment and one of my fave techniques, brayering.

For this card I started with a white cardstock panel and cut out a circle from a post it note for the sun. I stuck the circle to the panel and then brayered more mustard ink starting from the top. On my last layer of more mustard ink I removed the post it note to give the sun its color. Then I replaced the post it note and brayered really rust ink over top. I stamped the cat tail image twice along the bottom in really rust and filled in the cat tails with a marker the same color. The sentiment was stamped over top in black and I drew a small "V" of flying geese with a black marker. Final touch was a bit of ink sponged around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to pop over to the MSS block party and play along!
