Cosmos is the October flower of the month in the Lila Grey Digi Stamps available on the website below and/or Etsy shop.
I printed the flower on the right hand corner of white cardstock. I followed the Tuesday color challenge on SCS which is Tempting Turquoise, Smokey Gray and Crushed Curry. I only had the TT but used Granite Gray acrylic paint and Honey CTMH inkpad and alcohol marker. I did need to use green for the flower stems but besides a little black and white, just stuck to these three colors.
I spread watered down gray paint around the flower and entire page. Once dried, I randomly stamped some turquoise ink around the page using the Gorgeous Grunge Stampin' Up set. I used a blending pen to "paint" the flower in honey ink and used the coordinating alcohol marker to darken around the edges and inside lines in the flower.
I used a circle stencil to add gray circles on the top right side of the page and doodled around them with a black BIC pen. Stamped some background dots on the flower and around the page using the appropriate color ink. Then I sprinkled watered down white acrylic paint around the page. After everything dried, I stamped the sentiment.
