Wednesday All That Scraps Challenge

It's Wednesday and time for another All That Scraps Challenge. I haven't had a chance to participate in the last 2 challenges but was able to prepare a sample for this week's. The challenge is a color challenge. Use the colors Ridinghood Red (I used Ruby Red since it is so close), Baja Breeze and Kraft. This is a great color combo which I used on a Christmas card as well...I'll share that one another time.
This card uses some My Minds Eye paper and the Olivia's Birds set. I used the tree branch on several cards during the release for this set and it wasn't until I saw that the other design team girls used it as a sweet little tree, that I decided I had to CASE the idea! So here is Olivia sending you a little wave! The sentiment is from the Sentiment set. The sentiment actually says "A" Hello From Me, but all of it would not fit in the circle, so I chopped off the "A" and it works great. I used SU punches to highlight the sentiment. I also water colored Olivia with my SU ink and an Aquapainter. I don't own any Copics so that is why I keep water coloring everything. Yes, it takes awhile to get a large image done, but I still love the way it looks. Definitely different than Copics but I still like it. I admire all the copic coloring the rest of you gals do, but I just can't take the plunge and spend all that money on them!
Finally, the ribbon in the new Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon from Stampin Up! Again, that color is so similar to Ruby Red, that it works just fine on this project. Anyway, I hope you have a great day today! I'm hoping I get a chance to stamp again. I'm getting very overwhelmed with all the unorganized messes in my room and the rest of the house, so I've been trying to get some stuff picked up rather than stamp. Of course it isn't as fun as stamping!

So cute! As great as your watercoloring is (you know I've always envied it), why in the world would you ever "take the Copic plunge"?! I love the sentiment. Is it from the same set?

so cute, Crystal! You don't need Copics to make a great card, your watercolouring looks great!
