Color Challenge 221 Fifth Ave

Today's color challenge on splitcoast
was just that, a challenge. The colors today are kiwi kiss, tangerine tango and riding hood red with a optional neutral. I immediately thought of fifth avenue floral (su) I stamped the flowers with stazon jet black and commenced to watercolor and cut out the flowers before I planned anything else. I watercolored the centers in kiwi kiss and the flower petals are in riding hood red, tangerine tango then both on the middle flower. After much struggle, I used whisper white for my card back, then a wide strip of kiwi kiss embossed with swiss dots with the corners shaped with the ticket punch (su) for my background. Then I found a piece of urban garden dsp that had the same subtle flower print. I used labels 4 for the dsp and for the tangerine tango label. I stamped "always" from small script (su) in riding hood red, (not sure about that choice) with dew drops on either side of the sentiment. I tied riding hood red taffeta ribbon around the kiwi kiss to anchor the card, and to add more rhred. I adhered the flowers with dimentionals to give them a little, well dimention. :0) Thank you for stopping by and for sharing your thoughts!
