New Color Challenge at The Outlawz!

Happy Tuesday friends!!  Hoping you all enjoyed your weekend and started your week off on a good foot!  And since it's Tuesday, it's time for another Color Challenge over at The Outlawz!

So for this next week's challenge, Brenda chose this yummy color combo:

So super pretty, don'tcha think?!  I just love these colors together.  Now remember, there's a twist with your creations, you must add a water element as well!   

Isn't she precious?  I got the image for joining the Progressive Challenge on the CDAC.  To find out how you can join in the fun, click here.  I had to make some minor changes to my embellies :).  The lace ribbon was stark white, and I wanted to soften it a bit so what I did was steep a hot cup of tea and let the lace soak for a few hours in the tea (which is a new technique I've been dying to try but a little intimidated by).  The pearls on the butterfly were white and I colored them with my B95 Copic to match the blues on the card.

We have some fabby prizes this month sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads:
