Bravo Lilly's- CCCCAct2

It's Sunday and that means it is time for another Curtain Call Color Challenge from Stacey! This week, Act 2, the colors were pulled from this towel set from Pottery Barn. The colors are Bravo Burgundy, Mellow Moss, So Saffron and Whisper White. These were fun colors to work with, go check out her blog and give it a try!

Here is what I came up with, a birthday card with some Bravo Burgundy water colored Lilly's (I am not sure if this picture does justice with the colors, it is an off day with the camera). I stamped the Lilly's, which are from the stamp set Fifth Avenue Floral, on water color paper using Black Staz On. Then I took my Bravo Burgundy Stampin write marker and traced the edge of some of the petals. Then I took my Aqua Painter pen and blended it all together. I used my So Saffron stampin write marker to make the middle of the Lilly's yellow.
In this close up, you can see that I stamped the same Lilly stamp in Versa Mark on the Bravo Burgundy card stock to add a little more detail. I matted the main image with the So Saffron and then Mellow Moss cardstock and then paper pierced around it with my paper peircing tool and added the 5/8" White Satin ribbon to finish it off.

Thanks for looking!
