iSpy Colour Me Beautiful

When I saw the colors this week at Colour Me Beautiful I almost didn't even attempt a card.  Wisteria Wonder is one of those colors that just doesn't appeal to me.  However, as you'll see from my card, I buried the Wisteria Wonder so it only makes a tiny appearance.


I decided the colors would make for a good brayered card, so with no idea of the final layout, I brayered a panel using Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant with some River Rock at the bottom.  I then stamped two images from My Friend using black ink.  It was at this point I realised I could use this card for the card sketch at iSpy Sketches, so I made a flower using Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder for the circular layer on the sketch.  Unfortunately the last step involved spraying some Shimmer Mist onto the flower and I got a big blob of it in a very prominent place - I'm sure you can see it without looking too hard LOL.

Thanks for looking.
