Penny Black and More - Fall Colors

Happy Sunday!
It's the first Sunday of the month and that means a new challenge at Penny Black and More. Since it's September and Fall is just around the corner, we have a very fitting challenge for you this month -

Fall Colors

I decided to create a watercolor wash background with salt, and use one of my favorite Penny Black floral stamps - Butterfly Suite.

I used Grumbacher Deluxe watercolor paints and salt for the background. The image has then been stamped with archival black ink, then I colored it using the paints.
Sentiment is part of the set "Autumn Letter Seals" by Whimsy stamps.

I hope you'll join us this month, as always we have some fabulous prizes to give away. You are not required to use a Penny Black stamp. Any company is fine, just be sure the main focus on your creation is hand stamped. And you can enter up to 3 times for more chances to win. 
You can visit the challenge blog simply by clicking the logo below.

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday!
