Fancy Friday Blog Hop - Color Me Fancy

My fancy friends and I are BACK! We loved working with each other so much that we decided to continue on with an all new blog hop to inspire you in fun new ways! Each month on the last Friday, we will bring to you new challenges of all kinds (color,sketch, stamp focus, etc) that you can even participate in!
This month's challenge was a color challenge! These regal tones are one that I normally do not work with but I love a challenge that brings me out of my comfort zone. The picture of the chair also was my inspiration for my card.
My card base is Island Indigo embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Added some Early Espresso sponging on the edges as well as some straight re-inker splatter with my Aqua Painter. Next color up was the Blackberry Bliss 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon. To get the curled ribbon to stay in place, just use a glue dot! Then came in Tangelo Twist...I wanted to try a new technique to me with the watercolor paper and clear embossing powder. I used the Choose Happiness Stamp Set flower. Tip: to get the ink off the embossed part, use a Blender pen to lift the color off of it. Overall I really like this look and I think my fancy friend Jane would be proud of me. She rocks this watercolor look! 

 Wanna chance to play along with the challenge and have a chance to win the Seasonally Scattered stamp set from the new Holiday Catalog?
