Tough Colors!

Betty's Color Challenge was truly a challenge!! I drew a blank when I first saw the combo, but was determined to come up with something. I went back in time with this old retired image from SU...have never used it much, but yet I like it when I do use it. I'm not sure if marjoram has a hot pink bloom, but with stamping you can take license to be creative - lol! I used the 3 colors: Melon Mambo, Baja Breeze & More Mustard in the BG panels - stamping with the Sanded BG and Antique Cracking BG stamps. I used a multitude of Copic colors...TOO MANY to list them all - to color the image. Some distressing and sponging finished off this card that I'm still wrinkling up my nose at! :-)
STAMPS: Sweet Herbs (SU), Antique Cracking (SU), Sanded (SU)
PAPER: Baja Breeze, More Mustard, White
INK: Melon Mambo, Baja Breeze, More Mustard, Early Espresso
ACCESSORIES: Distressing tool, Copper brad, Copics, Ticket corner punch
