Color Inspiration

OK, I don't mind telling you that this color challenge is so far out of my comfort zone that I can't even SEE my comfort zone - it's THAT FAR AWAY!!! I tried one idea with Fabulous Flowers and it was U-G-L-Y! So then I turned to my favorite Bella Toile. Seriously, can you ever go wrong with toile? I think not! I randomly inked the stamp with Regal Rose and Rose Red and then I added Bravo Burgundy around the edges and a little in the middle. Then, in a stroke of GENIUS, I used my aquapainter and watercolored the background with Soft Sky ink. It's hard to see in the picture, but it is very striking in person. I hope I make the cut this week!
