Stampin' Up! Earthen Textures for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Thank you for stopping here from wherever you came! We have a color challenge today and here is what I created for our hop.

I chose to use Moody Mauve, Misty Moonlight, Smoky Slate and Pretty Peacock. 

Let's take a closer look at my card, shall we?
The squares were created using the faux watercoloring technique. I used my Smoky Slate and Moody Mauve Stamp N Write Markers, block and water spritzer to accomplish that.

Next I used the Earthen Textures Dies and Earthen Elegance DSP, along with the More Dazzle Specialty Paper for my vases and sprigs.

The sentiment is from the Very Best Occasions Stamp Set and is stamped in Pretty Peacock.

The three embellishments are Pretty Peacock gems from the Tinsel Gems Four Pack.

Here's a look at the inside (I mistakenly thought the left side DSP was Smoky Slate but it turns out it is actually Gray Granite). Close enough for government work and you can't see it from the!

That's it for now peeps. Measurements are listed after our hoppers. Clicking on the "next" button will take you to Akiko. Clicking on the names listed below will take you directly to team members and their projects. I hope you enjoy all the creativity. Thank you for stopping by!
