Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #69

This one came to me fairly quickly...once I figured out a color scheme, that is! Awhile ago, I printed up a color reference chart called the In Color Combinations chart. I chose: Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red and More Mustard. Turns out, I liked it a lot! I added Basic Brown so I could watercolor my image a tiny bit.

Here's our sketch for today:
And here's my card:

There's quite a combo of texture on this one! The Kiwi layer went through the Big Shot with a texture plate. The card base has the damask image from Friends 24-7 (so glad I bought that set!) stamped tone on tone using my versamark pad. I used Baja Breeze Corduroy buttons and the scallop gives one more layer of texture. The watercolor paper has a bit of texture, too! I went a little texture crazy!

If you want to see what others did with this sketch or you want to play along, please go to Mary Jo's site! Thanks for looking!
