SC166 & CC156

This is my card for today's sketch challenge. I was also able to use yesterday's color challenge . I had such a difficult time yesterday with these colors (wild wasabi, purely pomegranate, and so saffron). I just kept thinking Christmas.


Last night I decided to stamped my image and water colored it with the colors. I was just hoping the Roxy would come up with a sketch that I could use. I wish that I had one more black dot for the left side, but I cannot move them without ripping the paper. I did cheat and use Rose Red DP instead of Pomegranate DP -- I think they are so similar so maybe you will not notice. (wink wink)

Stamps: Morning Soft
Paper: Basic Black, Wild Wasabi, Watercolor paper, Saffron & Rose Print DP
Inks: Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate, So Saffron, Basic Black
Extras: Paint Brush, Dimensionals, and Black Adhesive Rhinestones (Marcella by K)

Corie, this is gorgeous. I love how deep the pinks are on the flowers, and your use of the hint of saffron really adds some punch. Beautiful.

Corie this is GORGEOUS! WOW! Your flower is stunning...fabulous colouring!

I almost used my Rose Red Prints Paper too...hehe! Then I changed to just pomegranate paper and used Saffron prints ;)

I love the little bits of black to accent.

FANTASTIC girl!
