Hello Stampers! Today's card is for Create with Connie and Mary's new sketch challenge.
I chose to go with a springy creation using Nature"s Beauty and the flowers from Free as A Bird. I think they make a nice combo, don't you? I love how this stamp set can reflect different seasons just by changing up the colors. I used Soft Seafoam and Seaside Spray along with Rococo Rose for the flowers. I color the bunny with Smokey Slate and added in some Sahara Sand as well.
All of this is water-colored on watercolor paper.
I grabbed a piece from my scrap stash for the background and when I added it to my Soft Seafoam card base I realized it was just a shade different from the Soft Seafoam. When I grabbed from my stash, I thought it was Soft Seafoam. Upon further investigation, I believe it's a retired color called Pistachio Pudding. It was an In Color from several years ago. I was pretty sure I had purged all retired colors from my stash, but this one escaped me. Anyway, I think It makes a really nice, subtle contrast on the Soft Seafoam. Sometimes accidents are happy.
On a side note, I really loved Pistachio Pudding along with all the other In Colors that year. Those were probably me favorite In Colors to date!
I'd love to hear what your favorite In Color is or was!
I'm also playing along with Tic Tac Toe Challenge #50 using Die Cut, Spring, and Blue.
