Color Throwdown wants us to use orange, brown and green for this week's challenge..

I bought myself some new stash yesterday, amongst others the wood mounted flower image from Penny Black used here and the stitched frame dies from MFT.
I used orange for the flowers, green on the leaves (easier to spor IRL) and brown for the vase and background. Coloring and distressing using DIs.

This card is for:
Color Throwdown - #449 Color Inspiration
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Flowers
Moving along with the Times - #48 English Country Garden (Roses)

great using DIs to coloring
I am not patient to do it
thats why I used my peerless transparent water color
its a paper and you get some colors and you can take the colors from that paper
this is a winner card for my eyes Pia..
