The inspiration piece for this challenge made me reach for Every Moment Stamp Set.
This is a set from the catalog that I had been eyeing since it came out in July, I broke down a couple weeks ago and got it. It's so fabulous for watercoloring! I used my ink pads with aquapainters.
For the center of the flower, I started with a light color, Peach Parfait, then added a bit of Pumpkin Pie, then went even darker just at the top with Cajun Craze. A bit of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter finished it off. I added a little highlighting around the flower with a touch of Tempting Turquoise from my ink pad.
I love the punch that the Tempting Turquoise Grosgrain Ribbon gives…and NO! Stampin' Up does not sell Tempting Turquoise Ribbon, so I had to make it myself. It's quite easy!
Fill a container with a bit of water, add a few drops of re-inker, drop in your ribbon, then swirl it around. Let the ribbon soak up the colored water, then take it out and let it dry on a paper towel. OR, just keep it in the container and let it dry out on it's own! Easy peasy, see for yourself:
