IO DT Color Challenge!

Well the Impression Obsession girls are at it again. We got our team challenge this week and it was all about colors that I hardly ever put together -- orange and pink! I had to dig through my dp to try to scrounge up something and---- this-- is what I came up with!
I've had this stamp (from the Daisy Today set) for a while and can you believe, I've never inked it up? I love, love, love these flowers. I don't know what has been holding me back! So, for this challenge, I just knew I needed to break it in. Who doesn't love pink daisies?

This card was really quite simple! I stamped my image with Palette Noir ink, and then colored my leaves and stems with olive green watercolor pencils. The flowers were done by scribbling a light pink watercolor pencil on a scrap piece of paper and then picking up the color with a blender pen!

I also shaded parts of my flower with my Cool Grey #1 Copic marker.

After I was done coloring it and matting it up, (Daisy D and Bo Bunny decorative papers with Melissa Frances Ribbon) I gave my flower some bling! I painted it with Candlelight Shimmerz! It's my favorite Shimmerz of all time because, even though it is an ivory color - it doesn't really deposit any color when you paint it on in a thin coat. It just accentuates what color is underneath!

Here's a close up!
Well all, thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out the rest of the IO gals and their fun orange and pink creations!
