Hi everyone!

We have had some beautiful days in the neighborhood lately!  Temps in the 80's and no rain!

Today over on SCS Julia challenged us to color our creations with anything but ink!



I chose to use acrylic paints! I used an artist brush with water and a light blue acrylic color to add color directly to the Rubbernecker flower and an olive green acrylic to color the leaves and stem! After stamping I added accents of white, darker blue and a touch of yellow! The frame was made using Spellbinder's Nestibillities then popped up over the image! I used a decorative cuttlebug corner diecut for the framing and corners and a c/b folder for the embossing! MFP Breezy blue and Bang Up Blue.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a marvelous day!

So many people have had the blues lately in the gallery - lol! This card is so striking with the vivid blue and white/gray combo!

Gorgeous colors and design! I love how you used the little corner brackets with the frame! Lovely card, Fran! It has been really hot here, too! Lots of rain, too, though so that is good I guess!
