The Play Date Cafe - Color Challenge

Happy Play Date Cafe Thursday!  This week in the Cafe we have this beautiful picture for you to use as inspiration. 

Instead of creating a card with a flower as my focal image, I used this sweet new image from the Artistic Outpost Lovely Day plate.



The collage image is stamped in Black Archival on Watercolor paper, then colored usign the Marker Watercoloring Technique, in Crushed Curry and Pixie Pink.  I added Ranger Old Paper Distress ink the stamped panel to age it a bit, then mounted on a Black panel and distressed the edges.  I found the perfect colors in this piece of Basic Grey Two Scoops Pattern Paper to match todays challenge.  I added some Zva Creative Pearls to the Crown and bottom corner.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Lovely Day
Ink - Black Archival, Markers, Ranger Distress Ink Old Paper
Card Stock - Pretty in Pink, Black, Watercolor
Other - Basic Grey Two Scoops, Zva Creative Pearls, H20 Brush, Ink Blending Tool, Distresser
