Default Jan Wk 2 challenge

Here's my interp of this week's OMBRE color challenge. I used watercolor paper and pencils for the backround color treatment from light pink to purple. I went back to a July webisode to try Gail's technique. I used the Botanicals stamps for the flowers and a fairy paper tole.

That's a beautiful card, Karen. The fairy fits very well with the colors and the stamps.

Lovely card. Love the fairy. I'm going to have to go back and find that webisode so I can learn that method. Judi

This probably doesn't qualify because I used pre-printed paper, but I wanted to share it anyway because I LOVE the new Janie's Girlfriends stamp set! The paper is from the Gypsy Jewel paper pack. I also used Spectrum Noir pens, Thinline silver border Dazzles and some pink heart and swirl Dazzles I got in a personal shopper kit.
