Color Throwdown #48--Waterlily

It's another Color Throwdown day!!! Today, LeAnne is the hostess with the mostess and she picked some yummy colors! We're about to say goodbye to the In Colors so she's using Baja Breeze, Pink Pirouette, and Kraft.

I can say they're yummy now because I love how my card turned out, but when I pulled out these colors to start working on them I was scratching my head wondering what I was going to do! Later, I walked by my water garden and saw waterlilies blooming and that was my inspiration. This new Flourishes' set hadn't been inked it up yet, so this was the perfect time to do it.

I stamped the image on water color paper with Staz-On black ink and watercolored with re-inkers and a brush. I'm not totally happy with my shading but overall I'm very happy with this card. I'm using DP from Bella Birds and Baja Breeze DSP. Baja Breeze double stitched ribbon and some flat backed pearls were all the embellishment I thought it needed.

C'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use Mr. Linky to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD48 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there!
