Blue Aqua Gray and white

Hi there

When I saw the luscious color combination at Color Throwdown, I had to play along.  The challenge icon is posted below.

I pulled out an older set that hasn't had nearly enough use, WPlus9's Watercolor Anemones. 

The entire stamp image was stamped in gray.  The flowers were then separately stamped in shades of blue and aqua, then cut with the matching die. The MFT sentiment was white heat embossed and mounted over a sliver of silver glitter tape.

The panel was diecut and mounted onto a dark charcoal card base.  

I think gems are making a least in my book they are. I sprinkled a few tiny ones around.

I am entering this to two challenges -
Color Throwdown 502 
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Diecut or Punch 


Thanks so much for coming by!
