Java Bellas


This marks my first challenge. As in I've never gotten around to doing one before. Ever. Now the average reader may think sooo what's your point? but for the card maker that's not so common. I'm pathetically laggin', what can I say? Now on to the details, there were 3 requirements, colors this time actually. Old Olive, Purely Pumpkin, and Chocolate Chip. The cardstock was SU Old Olive, the background patterned paper was My Mind's Eye Wild Asparagus, the pens were SU in all 3 colors and a little Bashful Blue for the vase. I used the aquapainter for the color blending and the white paper was cheapie water color paper from Michael's. I've never worked with it before so I figured why pay for the good stuff if I'm only practicing. The 2 flower embellies are actually the same color blue as bashful blue but they reflected light something awful when I took the picture. I found those in the dollar section at Target. 2 stamps were used JavaBellas and Many Thanks from All Year Cheer I. It was a reeeaallly simple card to make except for the learning curve on water color painting. Not the fine art form I was expecting it to be....
