Bright, but Vintage!
When I first saw this sketch and the colours for this week's Sunny challenge my first thought was no! The colours wouldn't work and the sketch was too square, but the design team had done great things with it so maybe I could too. So I thought about it for a couple of days before getting down to work. With this stamp set I usually 2 step the flowers and then cut them out, but I really wanted to watercolour on this card so that the colours weren't too bright. So I stamped straight on to the card using only the outline stamp with soft suede ink that had been stamped off once.
Stamps: Field Flowers and Short & Sweet
Card: Very vanilla, melon mambo, tempting turquoise and soft suede
Ink: Soft suede, melon mambo and tempting turquoise markers
Accessories: Large oval punch, scallop oval punch and `chantilly ribbon
