Sparkle & Shine challenge #17

I haven't played in the Sparkle & Shine challenge for awhile, but the jewel-tone colors of the inspiration photo got my juices flowing!

Sparkle & Shine #17

supplies: white, black, and watercolor cardstock, Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold & the Extras, markers to color, Simon's Painted Hello die, Winnie & Walter Audrey's Cutaways, assorted sequins

I wanted to bring in some more of the green, since it was prominently displayed in the inspiration, so I scribbled some of the green marker on an acrylic block, added water, and made a wash of it for my background.

Here's our inspiration:

Thanks for stopping by - hope you're off to a great week!
