A couple months ago I sang at our church's Confirmation service and became mesmerized with a dress one of the "Confirm-ees" was wearing... it was a black floral print on white, with splashes of dark turquoise... I decided to recreate it for my background here, using pink!
These are the latest colors for the colourQ Challenge... aren't they gorgeous! I paired it with Laura's 2Sketches4You sketch this week, which I thought would work well to show off the background.
I waited to order my Stampin' Up! 'pre-order' until the very last day - lol! Not much of a 'pre' anything, I know! This set is called Fast & Fabulous, and it's free with a qualifying order from Stampin' Up, and the sentiment is from Thank You Kindly! I stamped the background in Momento black ink for the flower outlines, & for the petals I inked with Momento but stamped off once to lighten it before stamping the background. Then I went back in with a brush and watercolored in my pinks. After drying it woth my embossing gun, I dry embossed with Stampin' Up!'s Square Lattice EF to give it a fabric~y look. For the 2 cut out flowers I used Stampin' Write markers to color the stamps, using the lighter pink first and then the darker. The large grey scallop border is from Papertrey Ink.
