Interesting color combination...

I did a color challenge over on Paper Wings which consisted of: orange, hunter/dark green, ivory, brown, and kraft/tan. I really like how this card turned out!!




I used DCWV colored cardstocks and watercolor paper for the Watercolor Plants stamp. They're stamped by misting the stamp with water then coloring with watercolor crayons before applying to the lightly dampened paper. The 2 top images I used my Impress Brights markers applied directly to the stamp before applying to the dried paper. I also used my paper piercer on the brown cardstock then sanded with my sanding block. I had this cool ribbon from a sale at Michaels that was just the right kraft/tan that I wanted and tied 2 small pieces to form the bow. My white scrappers floss was colored with Orangerie PH ink by rubbing it on the ink pad. If you look closely at the green you will see the Script background that I stamped with my Versamark ink. So, what do you think?? And I like my sunflower that the card is standing against. We munch on the seeds when sitting at our patio table.
