FTTC48 -- Color Challenge 2 + 1

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone~ It's the first Flourishes Timeless Tuesday of the year 2010! Some of you are wondering why I'm still here?? Well...my friends, Friends of Flourishes are so kind to let me stay permanently in FOF team!! Woohoo!! I hope you will keep coming back here to see my FTTC work again :):)

This week I am the challenge host and challenging you to a color challenge (FTTC48) . I am giving you two colors and you have to choose one. Sort of like a 2 +1 color combo. The colors are black and yellow plus another color of your choice! Have fun playing along with us. We look forward to seeing what you create!


I decided to use olive green for my choice. This beautiful daffodil image from Signs of Spring was stamped with black ink on the watercolor paper. Then I water-colored with reinkers and Twinking H2Os. After the image was completely dried, I simply stamped the greeting. I created the loop borders and corners using the border and corner punch - great punches!!


Stamps: Signs of Spring (Flourishes)
Paper: classic white, watercolor paper (Flourishes), barely banana (SU), black cardstock (Bazzil), Bitty Box dp (PTI)
Ink:
India black ink (Superior), summer sun, so saffron, barely banana, pumpkin pie, more mustard, kiwi kiss, old olive (SU), Twinkling H2Os - chestnut brown
Accessaries: ribbon, gold code, rhinestones
Tools: Nestabilities, border punch, corner punch


Don't forget to check the rest of FOF's creations!!
