It's Wednesday & time for BWC#15

Hello everyone!!

Well, it's Wednesday again and you know what that means!! Ashley's BWC!!! This week Ashley challenged us with another great color combo: Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive, Choc. Chip and Whisper White.

I kept my card pretty simple as I am trying to finish up my swaps to go to convention with!!! Yeah, I leave in less than two weeks now!!

I used the Quiet Moments set here, and if you love this set it is now in limited quantities so hurry over to Treehouse Stamps and put your order in!!! I just love this sentiment as it is so true. How else can you dream if you're surrounded by loud noises and interruptions from all over?? Now I personally don't like to fish, but I could be the girl just sitting on edge of the stream, dangling my feet in the water and dreaming.

My base card is made with Old Olive in a 5" x 5" square size and layered with Bravo Burgundy followed with the white main image panel. I incorporated TLC177 from SCS this week on the main image panel. The technique was to create a grid on your cardstock by scoring. I used my Scor-Pal for the scoring in a diagonal fashion.

To create my image, I first stamped the girl in brown staz on and then I watercolored the grass, water and sunshine with my aquapainter and reinkers to give them a softer look. To color in the girl I used my SU! markers since I wanted her to stand out from the rest. And then I took my SU! markers in darker colors to create highlights in the water and grass.

I used my Martha Stewart border punch for the choc. chip piece and highlighted that with my Signo white gel pen, ala Faith dots!! The same for the top edge of the Bravo Burgundy piece.

The butterflies are a Martha punch and punched with coordinating colors in dsp and Cuttlebugged stock. The sentiment is up on dimensionals.

Enjoy and Happy Stamping!!!
