Sunny turquoise and yellow

I got to play along on a new-to-me challenge blog, Keep It Simple, it's all about turquoise.
 I get going and I seem to forget about the "simple" part! Oh well, I had fun and this really was a fast little creation.  Mostly because I started out stamping the large medallion images with gray ink and then used Distress Stains here and there to add my color.  Because I used watercolor paper, a little spritz of water made the colors run a bit giving it a nice effect.  
 The smaller, yellow images were inked with Distress Stain and stamped directly to the paper.  I stamped one extra smaller image and punched that out in a circle for some added interest. LOVE these stamps from Mama Elephant.  That neat word bubble is also from Mama Elephant.  
 Here is the Keep it Simple challenge.
And for a couple photos...
 This star hangs in my backyard, thought I should take a picture of it for the Fourth!
Love these flowering succulents.  These things grow like weeds! Just pretty weeds!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)


  1. This is gorgeous! LOVING the colors!!!!

  2. LOL! Pretty weeds! There have been times I've let weeds grow just because they were pretty. Anyway - your card is great. I really like the colors you chose and the way you have the stamps meshed in with it. Nice!
