Color Throwdown #410

Good Morning- Happy, Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another set of colors at the Color Throwdown!! This week the colors were chosen by Wanda-Hope you enjoy them!! We're working with peach, aqua, and gray this week.

Lovely colors and sweet photo!!

So I played with some new Verve. First I water colored a background and cut to size adding a gray layer underneath. I also water colored the blue/aqua and peach onto watercolor card stock- allowed to dry and then stamped the flower images from Verve's Kindness Matters- these were stamped lightly so the outline image is not as crisp- repeated the same with the sentiment from the same set. Leaves were die cut with Verve's Dreamy Leaves- stamped with Versamark using the leaf image from Dream Big and heat embossed with a clear mixture which added a bit of variation. The layout is the first week's Viva la Verve sketch for September. 

Some inspiration...
