Just playing around....

Hello - happy Sunday evening.  Personally, I am very sad that the weekend is over.  It's busy season at work and one of clients is so behind that I just really don't want Monday to come.  *sigh*

I did enjoy my weekend.  I worked on some projects so that was fun.  I also decided I needed to play along with a couple of challenges.  I'm pretty sure I'll never get noticed at MFT Stamps, but I liked their sketch and thought that I might as well give it a try.  I'm also playing along with Just Us Girls - I haven't joined one their challenges in a really long time.  So it was high time.

My card features the Build a Bouquet stamp set by MFT - I'm pretty sure the stamps and dies are retired.  JUGs challenge is a color one - coral, gray and one other color.

I absolutely loved Francine's, MFT DT, card so this one I tried to emulate with a stamp set that I have and my own touches.  I watercolored the flowers using Zig marker on the leaves and  and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide ink for the blossoms.  I blended on Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink  on the card base then did some splatters with the same ink and dark gray Zig marker.

The sentiment is from That is All set by WPlus9.  Another favorite stamp company.  I'm going to visit Dawn one of these days - she's only about 2-2 1/2 hours from me.  I guess I should meet her first before I tell her that I'm going to come visit her.  :0)

Thanks for stopping by, I would love for you to leave me a comment.  Have a good rest of your Sunday night.

This is gorgeous! Those flowers are so soft and pretty and that background is so soft and perfect with the blended and splattered ink. Beautiful use of our Colors for this week's challenge. Thanks for playing along with us at JUGS!
