Color Challenge

Vicki has some great summery colors on the SCS Color Challenge: Tempting Turquoise, Pool Party, Garden Green. I wanted to practice watercolor wash backgrounds, so chose distress inks that were similar in color.  The colors reminded me of the sea, so I went with this retired  Old World Map stamp by SU and stamped in Versamark, then embossed with clear EP.  My new love is the Happy Trio dies by WPlus9...so easy to add a bold sentiment without covering up much of the background!  There you have it...a masculine birthday card that's quick and easy!

STAMPS: Whole Lotta Happy (WPlus9), Old World Map (SU).
PAPER: Ranger watercolor sheet, White, Black.
INK: Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass, Peeled Paint by Tim Holtz, Black Licorice hybrid ink for the sentiment by MFT, Versamark.
ACCESSORIES: Baker's twine, Charm by Martha Stewart, Happy Trio die by WPlus9, Fishtail Flags
Die-Namics by MFT.

Absolutely wonderful with the vibrant aqua colouring and the twine with the anchor is a lovely touch.
