CC200 Tough Colors and a bonus card.....

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

Today's CC200 is - Brilliant Blue, Pumpkin Pie and Garden Green. Some tough colors to combine!!! I thought I'd keep it really simple!!!

I embossed the Brilliant Blue CS with the *Leafy Branch* folder. The flower from the new *Echoes of Kindness* Set was colored with the Pumpkin Pie and Garden Green Marker. The inside of the blooms were colored with PP Ink and a Blender Pen. Next I stamped the sentiment from the *All Holidays* in Brilliant Blue Ink. This whole panel was raised with Stampin Dimensionals and I added some piercing on the side.




What do you think about this fun St. Patrick Day's image???? Even though I'm not Irish - I really think it is sooooo fun!!!
Did you know that Savannah, GA has a really huge population of Irish immigrants??? Every year they are celebrating St. Patrick's Day with a fun parade.....hopefully this year I'll have a chance to check it out!!!
Anyway - this new Set will be Released by *Treehouse Stamps* on January 9th!!!
Some of you have asked me how I do I do my clouds...I punched out two of the Scallop Circle CS, matched them up and started sponging....it's very simple and I just played around until I liked the results!!!
The BG DP is from the retired *Holiday Harmony* Collection. I inked the image in Black Stazon and colored it with Copic Markers. The clouds were inked in Bashful Blue. Next I layered the image onto Always Artichoke and Whisper White CS. For the *gold* I used some Stickles. To finish it all up I added the row of Gold Brads.
Thanks for stopping by - have a great day!!!

I'm going to attempt these colors tomorrow. I think I'll opt for lots of white and simple, too! Great job. Thanks for sharing the fabulous cloud idea using the scallops.
