I love Monday's. It has long been my favorite day of the week. I don't know why exactly. Maybe it just feels like a fresh start.
One of the best things about Mondays lately is I have my blog post all set and ready to go with my Clean and Simple Cards Challenge sample for the week. This week it was a sketch challenge.
I decided to use the Growing Green set for the first time to make this airy design. What colors to chose? Well, GREEN to start with as in Wild Wasabi. I used the Color Coach and found that So Saffron and Perfect Plum were suggested go-withs. Now, I would NEVER use purple on my own, I'm more of a red and pinks girl. But I decided to give this combo a try and to my surprise - I like it!
I did some reverse masking and sponged inside the square to make a background. Using the Aqua Painter and inks to watercolor enabled me to get just the light shade I wanted for the flower.
Enjoy your Monday! and a lovely Valentine's day too.
