mari got me my very own studio g lotus stamp (!gracias, m'ija!) which i ♥LOVE♥LOVE♥LOVE♥ and could not wait to use! i stamped it on some sticky-back canvas and "watercolored" it with glimmer mist. i used orange because of this rather awesome color palette from leah over at design dollies:
for some reason, as soon as i see orange and blue, i think india (...not sure WHY...) and i had the cool lotus, which was nice. so let's review: bright orange--check! light blue--yepper! royal blue...ummmmmmm, yeah... that's gone a bit purpley, actually. a sort of blue-ish purple, mebbe??!?! (squint REAAAAAL hard!) (ok, now squint and twirl the color knob on your monitor--there ya go!) ok, yeah. it might be sort of a stretch, but i will leave it to the authorities to rule definitively!
i think you'll agree i did slightly better with kazan's sketch 59 from 2S4Y:
so let's recap, shall we? color challenge... 2 outta 3; sketch challenge... kinda/sorta; really BOLD indian themed card i would never have made otherwise... ♥priceless!!!♥ :)
