Flowers for You - PDCC#31

It's time for another great color challenge at The Play Date Cafe!  This week Julie chose the colors Purple/Lavendar, Light Green, and Brown  to work with. I had lots of ideas running through my mind with this weeks colors, and thought the new Bloom and Grow Plate from Artistic Outpost would be just perfect for this weeks challenge.

For the Brown, I used some wonderful papers from the Shabby Chic Collection by Tim Holtz, adding the stamped Bees in Chocolate Chip ink.  The seed packet was stamped in Black on Watercolor paper, I added the stamped image of the flowers, then stamped them a second time on a scrap piece of paper.  The images are colored using the Marker Watercoloring Technique.  I colored the flowers from the scrap paper, and popped them up on dimensionals over the first image.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Bloom and Grow
Ink - Chocolate Chip, Black Archival; Markers Lilac, Olive
Card Stock - Black, Lilac, Watercolor
Other - DP Shabby Chic Collection by Tim Holtz, H20 Brush, Dimensionals, Sponge Dauber

Here's this weeks Color Story Photo Light Green, Brown, Lavendar/Purple.  We'd love for you to play along with this weeks challenge at The Play Date Cafe, you can find all the details here on how to enter.
