I think maybe I'd better build an ark...

Man has it been raining like crazy this week!! Actually I think we've had more rain this year than ever before, but really it was bad tonight. I think the worst is past and I still have power, so I'm a happy girl!

So since the sketch challenge worked out so great for me, I thought I'd give the color challenge a try. Other than VSN on Splitcoast, I have not done any challenges until this week. (shhh!! Don't tell!!!) By the way, can someone tell me why I did not get Mixed Bouquet before now?! Geez, I feel like I've missed so much!! I totally LOVE LOVE LOVE this set. I stamped the flower and leaves with Palette Hybrid Noir and then watercolored with the lid of my inkpads and reinkers and an aquapainter. I'm getting the hang of this! I inked up my Linen BG stamp and stamped it in spots on the WC panel to make it look kind of like fabric. Then I matted, popped up the main panel, and finished off with a bow. Not my usual color palette or style but I kinda like it!

Stamps: Mixed Bouquet, Linen, Bouquet Jumbo Wheel, Treasure Your Friendship by A Muse
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, Certainly Celery, WC paper
Ink: Palette Hybrid Noir, Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Stampin Up Narrow Organdy Ribbon, Aquapainter, Pop Dots

It's gorgeous, Shannan! Hmmmm... I didn't know I liked this set either, but now I feel like I'm missing out! This card looks so elegant.
