The big red flower

 Even though I am almost out of time, I really wanted to play along with the Colour Q challenge for this week. It has to be one of my most favorite color combos.  Part of the challenge was to use a newsprint look so I stamped a Stampers Anonymous ticket stamp and then cut that in a square with a My Favorite Things stitched die.  That was matted with a black MFT stitched square.  Because there are several sizes of squares in this die set, it is easy to do graduated sizes.  
 For the flower, I added two shades of Distress Stain to a piece of watercolor paper and then stamped a PaperTrey, Inc. flower over that colored piece.  It made for such a pretty flower and a real easy one too.  The leaves are from the same stamp set, I colored them with Copic markers.  The die cut word is from a set by Die-Versions.  
Here is the Colour Q combo.
