I used 2 challenges for my card and I love them both!
- The sketch is this week's sketch at Match the Sketch challenge blog. It can be seen here.
- The colors are this week's colors at Pals Paper Arts challenge blog. It can be seen here. The colors are So Saffron, Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron.
To create my card I stamped the front panel with Basic Black and watercolored it with ink and my aqua painter. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of watercolor paper when it comes to shading and contrast and creating vibrant color.Because Mint Macaron is a cool-toned green I added a bit of So Saffron to some of the leaves.
In keeping with the sketch I added some lace across the base and a butterfly and pearls for my accents. I know I have said it before but it is worth saying again - the thick, heavyweight Whisper White card stock is the best!! Just sayin'
All the supplies are Stampin' Up! and can be found in my Online Store.
