INKredible Color Challenge 5/13

Always Artichoke and Elegant Eggplant

Okay, so somehow between watching the Yankee game and Dancing With the Stars I managed to come up with a card to fit the challenge. Luckily, I had two of the flowers already stamped on the watercolor paper leftover from a previous project, so I masked them out and added the third one in the middle. I colored them with my aquapainter and Elegant Eggplant marker. The leaves are stamped in VersaMark and then colored in with a VersaMark marker on the Artichoke backing. I added the EE grosgrain ribbon on the corners of the main image. I had been wanting to try the "out of the box" technique. How do you think it came out?

I will use this as an anniversary card for our friends Bill and Kathy who will be celebrating their 31st anniversay on Wednesday.

As a side note here - my daughter is having her tonsils out in the morning - if you can, say a prayer that she has a speedy recovery and not a lot of pain. Much thanks.
