I'm Here For You-CYCI #150


Hello friends!

This week has been very busy, to say the least - and I feel like I have been just counting the days till the weekend! But now that it has arrived I am actually even busier, as today I am helping to organize a Trade Show at a hall down the street - I really wish I had a 3-day weekend!

Our Can You Case It challenge this week is a wonderful and unique color combo - courtesy of Kevin! 




I honestly struggled with visualizing these colors together and dreaming up a design - but I came up with something I was happy with - and here are all the ingredients ;)

Stamps: (SU) Weather Together, Awesomely Artistic
Ink: (SU) Dapper Denim, Sahara Sand, (TH Distress) Shabby Shutters, Versamark
Paper:(SU) Dapper Denim CS, Vellum, Watercolor paper, (Spellbinder) Copper Sheet
Tools: Woodgrain embossing folder, Copper embossing powder, Aqua painters

I LOVE my Aqua painters - because they allow such control when adding color just where you need it - and painting those delicate flowers was a lot of fun with it!

Now it is your turn to get inky and join us! Head over to our challenge page!

Thanks for stopping by - and, be sure to leave me some love to let me know you dropped in! 

Love, Peace n' Ink
