Stampin' Up! Bella Toile & Square Lattice Impressions Embossing Folder
It's funny how you learn things by accident. In last Thursday's posting I mentioned how water coloring with Basic Gray over Daffodil Delight gave you a very close Always Artichoke. Well, today's posting reveals yet another find! Cherry Cobbler water colored over Bashful Blue gives you Rich Razzleberry! Who knew! This card was one of those projects that challenged me to the point where I was just ready to throw up my hands. I had the basic concept and knew I didn't want to try and duplicate the photo inspiration, so I opted to grab the patterns from the table cloth and the color palette. After that I was lost. So I continued to just experiment til I was happy. Or at least exhausted from the possibilities! LOL

Putting It Together Tips:
- Basic color principles apply here. Blue + red = purple. The shades and hues of purple are dependent upon the intensity of the blue and red. If I had used Real Red I would most likely have gotten a redder purple, but because Cherry Cobbler is a deeper red, it gave me a deeper purple. Your base color - in this case Bashful Blue - should always be a pale version of the color and rely on the water colored color to provide the final color.
- I used the large flower image from the Because I Care set inked in Cherry Cobbler and printed on Bashful Blue. Then it was water colored with Cherry Cobbler. Let the color on the Blender Pen complete clear before you reload to provide the various shades. Then punch the image out with the Ornament punch and matt it with the die cut from the Holiday Windows Moivers & Shapers.
- I punched out two of the Large Decorative Label in Rich Razzleberry and offset them to matt a single punch in Very Vanilla and then passed it through the Square Lattice. This provides the cross pollination of pattern pulling from the right side of the card.
- Crumb Cake was the perfect subtle color to provide the punch for this sentiment.
