Eclectic Flower Shop ~ CMCC76 & SSSC273

Good Wednesday everyone!  Colour Me has another swell challenge for us this week!  It's sure to get your creative juices flowing!  This week's colors are....Elegant Eggplant, Coastal Cabana, and Old Olive.  
I also used the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 273.
As you know, purple always stumps me, but as usual, I turned to my beloved Pinterest and found some inspiration in the form of these flowers.....
8 Perfect Color Combinations for Your Wedding - Purple, Silver and Blue
I love the turquoise blue in the center and the purple on the tips, so that's what I tried to replicate.  I stamped the flowers on watercolor paper and used my aqua painter to wash the colors on.   After they dried, I punched them out and curled the petals a little.  

The neutral hardwood background is one of the new in colors....Tip Top Taupe.  I also added some Tip Top Taupe lace ribbon and some crocheted ribbon.

Make sure to check out my fellow Colour Me designers blogs!

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
