Onto the challenge....
This week's challenge is a creativity challenge:
Look at those lovely greens with just a hint of lavender. I was inspired to use the colors along with a the neutrals included in the picture.
My card based on the challenge:The background is from Hero Arts Antique Flower Background stamped with the Hero Arts shadow ink Soft Sand. The flowers are colored using watercolor markers and misted to give a slight watercolor effect. I used the same technique on both layers of my butterfly. The butterfly is from a Hero Arts set called Artistic Butterflies. The flower stamp is from Magenta A09150M. The sentiment is from Paper Bag Studios stamped using the Memento Bamboo leaves.
