Sweet Summer Color Lab Challenge

Today I decided to use up some of my scrap patterned paper and lo and behold this one matched the Color Lab Challenge #33 of Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz and Regal Rose.

I have SO MUCH paper and 'stuff' that it is now my resolution to always use something 'old' in one of my creations and not just go for the new Stampin' Up supplies that I have recently fallen in love with. :)

I did use the "Sweet Summer" set for the first time - I have only really seen this set being used for watercolouring so I wasn't sure how often I would use it since I don't have any watercolouring supplies yet and I don't know how to 'colour-in' yet. I thought I would take a chance and just do a basic clean stamp of flowers. It seemed to work with a light sponge of pink over the top.

Here is my card:

Materials used:
Stamps - Sweet Summer from Stampin Up's Sale-a-bration 2011

Ink - Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Versamark ink (a Regal Rose equivalent)
Cardstock - Pear Pizzazz, Regal Rose, Whisper White
Patterned Paper - misc patterned paper (I can't remember the brand or design)
Embellishments - misc ribbon in a Pear Pizzazz equivalent, Kaisercraft Pearls - Plum
Tools - sponges for edge of Whisper White and for flower 'middles'
