Yup... that was today's color challenge! Really Rust, Not Quite Navy, and Pretty in Pink! My first thought was BLECH!!! Are you kidding me??? How will I EVER get these colors to look right together.
Well, after much thought, this is what I came up with...
It's not my favorite card, but given what colors I had to work with, it's not half bad.
Stamps: Serene Spring (retired SU hostess set), Aida Cloth BG
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Really Rust, Pretty in Pink, watercolor
Ink: Really Rust, Stazon Black, various SU reinkers
Accessories: Scalloped corner punch, scalloped border punch, Labels Nestabilities, Petite Oval Nestabilities, Not Quite Navy brads, 1/4 inch Pretty in Pink grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals
I stamped the focal point image in Stazon black on watercolor paper and watercolored it with reinkers and an aquapainter. I did cheat a tiny bit on the watercoloring and added some fine details with the fine tip my SU markers in the coordinating colors to make the watercoloring "pop" some more.
I don't think I'd use this color combination again, but you never know!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my stuff today. Have a wonderful day!!! :)
