Magnolia Vs Stampavie Challenge #14

Today's challenge on Magnolia vs Stampavie was a color challenge. You were to use
  • Old Olive
  • Nearly Navy
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Bashful Blue and you were allowed to use flesh color on the image.

Well here is what I came up with and I only used the correct colors.

The papers are from Stampin Up 2007 and scraps but I think they are a close match to the colors.

When you look at the image closely it does not appear to be the colors, what I did was to use a waterpen and the ink pads. I colored the shirt bashful blue and added depth is the nearly navy. I did the color first in old olive and then in nearly navy. The problem was that I did not use watercolor paper. I used Whisper White and it soaked in without spreading. I decided to keep going and this is how it ended. I plan on doing the image on water color paper and switching the images if it looks better; at least it will be fun to compare.

I used the ends of the papers on the front and a new sheet of a paper I won in a blog candy. The match was perfect but I do not know who puts out the it though.

I did something stupid again today....I fell again. This time it was inside the house and I hit my desk on the way down. I am bruised and sore again. I am beginning to think that falling is becoming a habit. Maybe I am reverting back to childhood and learning how to walk will next.
Talk later...(before I fall again)
