Carte Postale Color Challenge

I decided to play with a new color combo today while Liam was sleeping. :) Ruby Red, Elegant Eggplant and Certainly Celery...how fun!

The stamp for the edges (Deco Deisgns - TAC) was colored with celery, black and ruby red and stamped on the vanilla card base. The flowers were watercolored in with eggplant and outlined with a gold gel pen. The eggplant circle was dotted with the gold gel pen, then embossed with a Cuttlebug folder. The celery circle was stamped with leaves from the Carte Postale set, inked edges with celery and dotted with the gold gel pen. The ruby circle was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and edges inked in ruby red. The center image was stamped on vanilla CS watercolored with celery, ruby red and eggplant, then outlined in gold gel pen. The image cut out using a circle punch. Leaves were stamped on a scrap of vanilla, watercolored in celery and cut out. All circles were layered together. Sentiment (Butterfly Kisses - Papertrey) was stamped in black. The edges of the card base were inked in eggplant.
