Easter Blessings

I love the clean look of this color combo. I started to add an additional mat of pretty in pink with some dsp but it just didn't look right. When I removed it and saw this combo, I thought it looked perfect, clean and simple.

I used so saffron and barely banana on the flowers, and certainly celery and old olive on the leaves. I used re-inkers and my aqua painter. I used a wash of barely banana around the image.
This was my first successful attempt at using the scalloped trim border and corner punch. You should see the pile of paper I wasted trying to get this right. But now that I have the dimensions right, I've been able to duplicate this many times. Shimmer White: 2 1/4 x 3 1/2,
Old Olive: 2 1/2 x 3 3/4, Whisper White 4 3/4 x 3 13/16 before punching with the scalloped trim punch. I followed Julie's tutorial over at Paper Pleasing Ideas (see link on the side bar).


Can you see the Champagne Shimmer Mist I added to the petals and leaves. You can also she the shimmer paper. Very pretty in real life.

Very very lovely! Yeah, the border and corner punches is a bit tricky. I haven't quite mastered it yet, but am going to follow the link to the tutorial you mentioned. Thanks!
