Rich Thanks

Hello again!  My second post of the day is for this week's color challenge at Splitcoaststampers, and using the current Deconstructed Sketch.  The color challenge is so fun, we had a "bingo" layout from which to choose our colors.  It was a bit mind boggling to decide but I finally settled on the left to right downward angle including So Saffron, Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry and Old Olive.

I decided to use the medium sized flower from I Like You in the circle.  At first I thought I would watercolor it using an Aquapainter, but I just couldn't get the shading I wanted.  So I started over and colored the larger flowers and leaves with Blendability Markers, and then used a Blender pen and reinkers to color the small flowers, as Blendabilities were not available in Crushed Curry or So Saffron.

I am always amazed at myself, when I think I really don't like a color and then I start using it with other colors I love and all of a sudden, it's one of my new favorites.  That's the case with Crushed Curry.  It looks fabulous with Rich Razzleberry (and also Bermuda Bay!) and while I am still not a huge fan of yellow, this color is a wonderful secondary color against other brights.

I took a bit of liberty with the sketch by replacing horizontal piece with the ribbon but I think it works well with all the elements in this card.

The word "thank" was cut twice from Rich Razzleberry card stock, then glued together.  I stamped "you" below, but it appears a bit faint in the photo.  I think in part it's due to how I positioned the lighting when I took the picture because the embossing on the panel underneath seems to fade away at the bottom of the photo as well.

As always, your visit and comments are so welcome and appreciated!!  Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
