Interesting color combo for the MFT Color Challenge. I always say orange is my least favorite color, but I discovered sometimes it's beautiful! The MFT Sketch provided my layout. Lately I've been loving white embossed graphic images with watercoloring. I used MFT Geometric Grid BG for the first time--just love it!
My smooshing was done with PTI Orange Zest, Limeade Ice & Winter Wisteria. You get shades with watercolor, so hopefully that counts for light & dark purple. The glitter strips were done with Score Tape & Elizabeth Craft Cool Highlight. I wasn't happy with the look because it's so transparent. Starting over wasn't really an option, so I grabbed the Champagne Stickles & started putting it over the other glitter. It kind of globbed so I tried to wipe it off, which made it spread & I loved the look--happy accident! The sentiment is from MFT Totally Happy & I stamped on the same watercolor paper so it would match. When I checked my felt supply I discovered that I have Orange Fizz which I bought to use for pumpkins. Cut it with the gorgeous MFT Rolled Gardenia & oh wow--can't say I don't like orange anymore--haha! Found a piece of cream vellum I got in a close-out & had never cut--perfect for the MFT Layered Leaves. I tried several colors for the card front & finally decided to use splatters of the same 3 inks on a watercolor panel. Always good to try something new & fun to see colors in a new light. Pink is still my favorite, but that felt no longer has to wait for pumpkin season! Speaking of pink, here are 2 more of my pink roses.
Just wish they'd last forever! I'm also entering SSS Wednesday, CropStop & Word Art Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by my blog.
