Blissful

The current PDCC colors of Midnight, Aqua & Terra Cotta grabbed my attention as I don't think I've ever used them together.  Many of you probably know my favorite style is elegant & that's what I decided to do for my entry.  I started by inking Penny Black's wonderful floral background stamp called "blissful" with VersaMagic Night Sky.  Then I used sponge daubers to color the blooms with VersaMagic Turquoise Gem & the leaves with VersaMagic Red Brick.  I like the sort of artsy effect it gives--not worrying about staying in the lines.  Then I covered it with Shimmer Spritz Bronze & added dots of Stickles. The panel is attached to a navy card with a bow & pearls to complete the look. The color of the ribbon actually blends with the leaves in real life.
I'm happy to report that a few doses of antibiotics have our Keesha furbaby looking like her old self again.  Thanks for all the well-wishes.  Hope your week is off to a good start & thanks for taking time to stop by my blog.
