Addicted to Stamps & More #286 - Anything Goes

I love an anything goes challenge, which is what we have for you this week at ATSM.  I pulled out my new Lilac stamp from Penny Black and used Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry (from CC&S's color challenge) to work on Challenge #286 at Addicted to Stamps & More.

I know these aren't typical lilac colours, but the stamp's flower is versatile and doesn't need to be limited to lilacs.  After using the three ink colors on watercolor paper, I went back in with an aqua painter and added a more color for a layered look.  The leaves have some of the Calypso Coral and Rich Razzleberry mixed with Old Olive, which created the brownish color for the stems. The flowers popped when I added Rich Razzleberry to the coral blooms.  A Lil Inkers die cut sentiment is inlaid.  Not sure that I like where the sequins are placed, but the big one at the top is hiding a little splotch of green ink!!  Oops!

Come and play with the ATSM's anything goes challenge this week!  Take at peek at the DT creations here!
