Beate's Challenge #10

I've skipped a few of Beate's sketch challenges, but I'm really excited about this one because I got to use lots of new products! I finally got my first delivery of new products from Stampin' Up! today and I couldn't wait to play...
I did some watercoloring with this one, stamping in black stazon ink and using my watercolor crayons with an aquapainter. The card base is Blue Bayou and covering most of the card front is textured moss cardstock (very nice!). All of the stamped images are in black stazon on watercolor paper. The blue berries are from the new hostess set appropriately named "Oh, So Lovely," and "love you" is from the new set "Short & Sweet." The ribbon is Wild Wasabi double stitched (couldn't resist!).
Stamps: Oh, So Lovely, Short & Sweet
Paper: Blue Bayou, Garden Green, Textured Moss, Watercolor
Ink: Stazon Black
Accessories: Watercolor Wonder Crayons, Aquapainter, Wild Wasabi Double Stitched Ribbon, Circle Punches, Word Window Punch
Tip: Since I haven't purchased any of the new In-Color ink pads (yet), I've found that some of the regular 48 colors coordinate nicely. For this card I found that Garden Green goes well with Wild Wasabi and Not Quite Navy goes with Blue Bayou.
