Color Challenge 185

It's Tuesday and time for another color challenge on Splitcoast. Today's colors are Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze and Vanilla.
I have had this adorable Inkadinkado stamp for a while and decided today was the day to ink it up. I love making Halloween and Fall cards but was in the mood to change the theme back to summer. Now that the Texas weather is a bit cooler, it is sooo nice to go outside and work in the garden!!

The image was stamped on Shimmery Vanilla cardstock from with Memento Brown and colored with a color wash from Kiwi Kiss and Bali Breeze ink pads and an aqua pen. I wanted to keep the colors light but the Kiwi Kiss kinda took over!! The sea shells were stamped on Bali Breeze cardstock with Versamark and embossed with white ep. I added a little glitter to tone down the white a bit. Note to self...get vanilla ep!! The shells and top layer were attached with dimensionals, the paper and ribbon are from Stampin Up!, and I added just a little piercing at the top under the shells. I pierced a line above the image but since it was crooked, I added the shells...oh, well, I like the shells better anyway! Another note to self...get a new piercing grid!!!

I hope all is well at your house and have a wonderful day...thanks for coming to visit!!
