When I saw the second Viva la Verve challenge for October (a sketch challenge with the twist of no brown or orange on the card) I thought, "How hard can it be to not use those 2 colors?" HaHa! It took me 2 days of looking through my papers to settle on something appropriate! Every time I got excited about the stamp set and papers I had chosen I realized there was either brown or orange (or both!) on those papers! I finally realized I could easily stay away form brown and orange if I stamped a Peacock!! (I love brown and orange so I probably easily could have added them too if allowed!!) Actually, my lovely daughter, reading over my shoulder has just pointed out that there is brown on this card. I am going to pretend that there is NOT!
I have been admiring The Dark Mermaid's work with Twinkling H2O's and was telling her I have not been happy with my work when I paint with them. I feel a little guilty because of the money I spent so I decided to paint my cardstock with some this time so that I get some use out of them. The cardstock base and mats are Night of Navy with some T H2O's over it and the embossed panel is Not Quite Navy that has also been painted with T H2O's.
Stamps: Swan Song and Wishing You - Verve
Paper: My Mind's Eye, Night of Navy, Not Quite Navy, PTI White
Misc: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Twinkling H2O's, Darice Gems
