In the Direction of your Dreams - CR84FN16


Welcome to another wonderful color challenge from CR84FN!  This weeks colors are Light Pink, Grey, and Medium Violet.  Not typically colors I use, but I'm always up for a good challenge.  I did add Brown and Black as my neutral colors, as I just couldn't give this sweet girl Pink hair.

All images are from Stampotique, stamped in Black Archival on Watercolor paper, then colored using the Marker Watercoloring Technique.  I added some Silver Gems to the flower centers and filled in the background with some sponged Grey clouds.




Here's this weeks color inspiration, we'd love for you to play along with us at CR84FN, you can find all the details here on how to enter. If you upload to any online gallery please use keyword CR84FN16 so we can find your creations!

This is one of my favorite Stampotique images. You just wonder what she's really thinking. You did a fab job on this card.

Apologies for being such a Johnny Come Lately to commenting on this beautiful card. Sometimes life just gets in the way. This is probably one of the many reasons I am so smitten with your card. It is so contemplatively carefree, and joyous in its style. Love the life affirming sentiment and her killer high heeled boot! Of course of course!
