Dynamic Duos' Trio

Hey, what's up with Dynamic Duos?  They have a new challenge with a TRIO of colours!  I'm not one to quibble about minor details though, so I gave it a try!
Here's the results:




  • I'm sure hoping that Santa brings me a new camera for Christmas, because this lack of quality in my photography is driving me bananas!  I have been a good girl, Santa!
  • I played around with a lot of different watercolour techniques for this card, but nothing worked to my liking, so I resorted to a double stamping method.  I inked up the stamp using Stampin' Write markers in Blushing Bride and  Pear Pizzazz and stamped on the Whisper White paper.  Then I reinked the blossom using Raspberry Ripple, but not the whole blossom.  I just put it where I wanted some depth, making sure some of the Blushing Bride was visible.  
  • The stems were not reinked, but gave a shadow effect with what ink was still left on the stamp.
  • I added the White Paper Lace Tea Doily and some Stitched Grosgrain ribbon in Blushing Bride, tied in a tidy little bow.
  • Three rhinestones in the upper right corner ad the final touch.
