Thanks a Bunch...

Back with another card.   Didn't do anything for days and now I'm a coloring machine, tee hee!  And I seem to be in a peachy-orangey mood right now.   Which is kinda funny because peach and orange are not two of my favorite colors, go figure!



Anyway this card is for several challenges.  Two different Flourishes challenges:  Bringing Back Beautiful (summer) and their Farm Fresh challenge.  I also used the sketch from Sketchbook Saturday challenge.  The stamp set I used this time is the Flourishes set Peaches and Cherries.  I colored the peaches with the following Copic Markers:  Y38, YR07, YR15, YG93, YG95 & YG97.  This is my first time coloring the large peaches image and I'm really happy with how it turned out.  The patterned papers are from Cosmo Cricket (Odds and Ends 6x6 pad) and Stampin Up! (In Color 6x6 pad).  I distressed the large scallop and the image with Ranger's Old Paper distress ink. 

Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  SU! Peach Parfait, Old Olive, PTI white; Stamps:  Flourishes Peaches & Cherries; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Old Paper; Copic Markers; Spellbinders plain & scallop oval dies; PTI Ripe Avocado ribbon; PTI buttons

Fabulous job on coloring Rosemary! I can totally relate on your trepidation with the color orange. I recently had to pick a paint color for my basement and my family laughed at my anxiety over a color called "redwood." It was orange... Orange is orange... even if you call it red... lol Blessings...
