Just Add Ink Challenge #16

**Just a reminder that I am offering BLOG CANDY...please see my post HERE for all details!**
Yesterday I was blog surfing and I came across this delightful blog called "Just Add Ink" and they have a Colour Challenge this week!  I love Colour Challenges!  So I decided to play along.  Here are the colours they asked for!

I inked up my new favourite set, "Watercolour Trio" and a retired stamp called "Weathered".  I need to get the "Sanded" BG stamp as it is similiar!  I inked the flowers in Close to Cocoa, Ruby Red and Pretty in Pink.  I had no Suede paper or ink (it is on my next order) and so I subbed in Close to Cocoa and Kraft.  I used the Saffron as an "aging" tool and sponged the yellow across the main panel...adding an antique look.  I also wrapped some hemp twine around the side of the card.
This was my last piece of Ruby Red and I am so sad to see it being retired.  I am hoping to get another couple of packs before it is gone forever!

Thanks for stopping by!
Smiles, Lesley :)
