Life's Moments in Blue

Elements of Style flowers water colored using the new colors of water color crayons! I finally got my new crayons and was so excited to use them! I ended up using Baja, Marina, Wasabi, Garden Green and More Mustard for the watercoloring. The backgrounds were stamped using both Artistic Etchings and Friends 24-7 stamp sets on Bashful Blue CS and Confetti Cream CS with Soft Suede and Bashful Blue inks.

I really would have liked to use Soft Sky for this card, it really needs a soft light blue and Soft Sky would be perfect! Oh well Bashful Blue is the current light blue so I just went with it!
I actually cut a 1/4" strip off the side of the base card to make room for the scallop edge. The base card is Bashful Blue CS, the layers are Confetti Cream and Bashful Blue with all layers sponged with Soft Suede ink!
Flowers stamped with Basic Black and cut out. Words inked and stamped with Soft Suede ink. Antique Brad finishes off the look!

This is beautiful. What a lot of cutting you did, too. When will the new colors be available to those who are not demonstrators?
