Aqua Birthday

Hello, hello....

Playing in a couple of challenges today with this creation.

I started by selecting my colors & layout because of these challenges:


Then, knowing I wanted to play in a couple of Penny Black Challenges, I started stamping my flower.

I really only wanted the flower to have any color, but once the panel was done, it just needed a little something, so I painted the offset chevron to match.

I love how the color really pops with all the soft Grays and Black.
I love using Penny Black brushstrokes stamps to achieve a watercolor look without being a painter. :)
Take a closer look at the sentiment. That is the new Delicata Black Shimmer ink....
you want this in your stash!
