Today.... I am in love with AQUA!!!

I am TOTALLY in love with the colour turquoise/aqua !!! I have decided to paint my craft room/office this colour....it is called "ocean spray". I was trying to find a "fresh" green for this room, but I just couldn't find the right shade, so I stopped fighting myself and succumbed to painting ANOTHER room in my house turquoise :) (one bathroom and my dining room are already this colour!).


Maybe this is the reason why I love this colour so much!!! A photo taken during the Christmas holidays on our trip to Cuba. This beach is known as the "Best" beach in Cuba, it is called Pillar Beach. Absolutely jaw dropping!!!

So when I saw Dawn's Raspberry Colour Challenge #21 had the colour Aqua in it I could not resist!!!

Here is my card:


The beads look black in this photo. but they are brown :) Coloured the flower with Copics and added twinkling watercolour paints. I watched Dawn's bow tying video to FINALLY help me tie a bow that looks pretty :)

Supplies:
Hero Arts stamps: CG141 Engraved Flower, CL380 Truly Appreciated, and CG119 Flourish Background.
Paper: PTI
Fiskers Punch
Copic Markers
Misc beads and ribbon


Thanks for visiting...Have a WONDERFUL day!!!
Hugs, TRace

Trace this is stunning - and the photo is making me salivate with envy... wish I was there!!! I am also painting my new studio aqua, or as the tin says, 'Duck Egg'. Can't WAIT!!!!!! Just lots of boring prep to do first. Boo hoo.
Anyway - the beading on this card is wonderful - such a pretty idea.
