WWC41 - Jackie's Sketch

Whew! Talk about getting in just under the wire!

In my defence, I did have my project done a few days ago, but the weather here on the BC coast has been rainy and gloomy and not great for picture taking.

As I was pondering Jackie's sketch, - you can see it on the Watercooler Wednesday blog - my eye happened to fall on a stamp set that's been sitting on my table ever since I finally ordered it a few weeks ago after coveting it ever since the 2015-2016 annual catalogue was released.

That set is Remarkable You.

It is perfect for colouring! And I love to colour!!

Since I've also been going through all my craft/stamping stuff and trying to purge, I had recently come across my one and only set of long-retired Stampin' Up! Watercolour Crayons - and here is the result:
 I used Basic Black cardstock because I wanted the image to pop.  It is coloured with Blush Blossom, Pretty in Pink, and Certainly Celery. Image is stamped with Archival Basic Black. The colours are very subtle, so I hope you can see them.

The flower is popped up with dimensionals on a circle and the image panel is also popped up.
 
A strip from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack and a few rhinestones finish it off.

Now, I better get this posted - only have minutes to spare!!

  1. Well, Gail, you made it by the skin of your teeth. What a lovely card! I have always loved black and white with a touch of colour. The Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery are so soft and subtle but add a wonderful touch to the image. Love it! Thanks so much for joining us this week for the Watercooler Wednesday challenge.

  2. Wonderful card Miss Gail. I'm so glad you skinned in on the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge. The colors are subtle but I bet they are a beautiful glow in person. I've come to the conclusion that this years pattern for the Neutrals stack is my all time fav. I love the look of the script against the basic color. Between the subtle color, the diamonds (they may be rhinestones but a girl can dream right?) and the basic black you have a real Breakfast at Tiffany kind of thing going on.
