Just Add Ink

I'm playing along with the current Just Add Ink challenge which happens to be a color challenge. We are to pick out 3 colors, so I went with the bottom row - navy, yellow, and green. Love this combo and thought it would work well with some new goodies from The Greetery.

I started with my favorite navy blue cardstock by Reverse Confetti (it's not as dark as most navy paper) and white embossed using the newly released Windowpane Plaid Background stamp from The Greetery. I'll have to confess I got too many white specks on a portion of the panel - in spite of using an anti-static cling tool - so I cut it in half and went with a new layout plan - lol! Next goof was with the sentiment when I stamped directly onto the white base with "Have A" and "Day" and proceeded to get it crooked...even with my MISTI. On to Plan B where I stamped it again and cut out tiny rectangles.  I love how this Sketchbook Roses (The Greetery) stamp set looks like you labored intensively with coloring and instead, it was just two or three step stamping! I embellished with some clear dew drops. I was happy with the end result even though my initial plan was altered thanks to errors! Hey, life gives you lemons...make lemonade! :-)

STAMPS: Sketchbook Roses, Windowpane Plaid Background (The Greetery).
PAPER: Navy Blue (Reverse Confetti); White (Papertrey Ink).
INK: Navy Blue, Buttercup, Sunshine (Reverse Confetti); Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky, Green Parakeet, New Leaf, Vintage Jadeite (Papertrey Ink).
DIES: Sketchbook Roses (The Greetery).

Thanks so much for stopping by!            ~Wanda

This is gorgeous Wanda - I honestly thought you'd water coloured this flower til you said you stamped it, wow! I love how you've teamed it with the Plaid background, it grounds it so beautifully. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.
