Color Throwdown #503

Happy hump day once again! It's time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge and Broni has some great classic colors for us this week! LOVE working with red, green and gray and can add neutrals if you like! 

It's been awhile since I've used the Fantasy Floral die set by Altenew and I felt the florals would really pop against a stenciled brick background pattern. 

I first water colored a variety of shades of red over a 4 1/4" x
5 1/2" panel, then repeated the process using several shades of green.  I splattered a darker shade of green over the leaves after they were die cut.

PAPER: Ranger watercolor cardstock; Black Licorice (MFT), Classic Crest Solar White CS.
DIES: Fancy Words (Reverse Confetti), Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics (My Favorite Things), Fantasy Floral Die (Altenew).
MISC: TCW Mini Bricks stencil; Clear dew drops; Mijello Mission Gold paints.

This is breathtaking!! I LOVE the lovely shading you did on the leaves and the die cut flower. The stenciled background really grounds the whole design.
