Sweet Violets

For Ways To Use It Challenge 224: Bold & Bright

I suppose this isn't as bright as it could be, but Orchid Opulence has always been a bright color that I don't use very often, and today I got the chance!

I stamped my violets {Flourishes} in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and then watercolored them with Orchid Opulence and Elegant Eggplant on top. The leaves are done with Green Galore and Mint Melody (retired). The surrounding color wash was done with Marigold Morning (retired). The flowers were then painted with Angel Wings Shimmerz.


I also made this for the Dirty Dozen/Fan Club Inspiration Challenge HERE.
Two more days of summer school and I am back to stamping every day! Tomorrow I will have a special fun card for someone special, so be sure to come back and see!

And how about some more Sneak Peeks for the July 1st releases at Our Daily Bread designs??
