Peachy Thanks

Welcome back, friends!  Tonight I have a fun card made for 3 challenges - the gorgeous color challenge at Color Throwdown, the sketch challenge at Stamps Ink Paper and a watercolor challenge for one of the annual Dare to Get Dirty challenges at Splitcoaststampers (SCS DTGD Forum).  Unfortunately I just missed the deadline for the SIP challenge but I've included links below to it and Color Throwdown so you can go visit and enjoy all the beautiful inspiration.

The CTD challenge is to use Peach, Yellow, Light Pink and White - yum!  I started by water coloring one of the flowers from Remarkable You using Peekaboo Peach.  I wanted to have a bit of depth of color to the shaded areas, but I didn't have a darker peach color so I added a tiny bit of Calypso Coral.  After the image dried, it was fussy cut and adhered to the tag.  The tag itself was made with Whisper White card stock, punched at the top with the Ornate Tag Topper punch and then stamped along the bottom with a border stamp in So Saffron ink.  Some Gold Cording was added to the top.

The top part of the background was created by wetting a panel of water color paper with a wet paintbrush section by section, dropping one of the challenge colors and moving it around, drying with a heat tool, then adding the next color.  After all three colors were added I took a wet paint brush and splattered the panel to add the water drops.  After drying, both the water colored and textured card stock pieces were adhered to a card stock panel slightly smaller than 4.25 x 5.5 inches, wrapped with some peach ribbon and mounted on a same size card base.

Thanks so much for looking - as always your visit and comments are so appreciated!  Have a great week.

Until next time...
