Bright Sweet Pea Poppies

I usually tend not to use very bright colors, but I had this Sweet Pea image stamped and had her dress colored with a muted shade of green.  When I saw the Playdate Cafe color challenge, I ramped it up turned her dress into this pretty aqua and pale green number.  All coloring done with Prismacolors blended with baby oil.  Added Pebbles chalks around the edge.  Flowers are made with punches from DP that I stamped using a flourish stamp.  Sentiment from JustRite.

Challenges:
Everybody Art Challenge - Sketch
The Play Date Cafe - Color scheme
Lili of the Valley- Circles
In A Sweet Pea Dream - Warm weather

Stamps:  Sweet Pea Field of Poppies, JustRite Hope set.
Paper:  Basic Grey Lilykate, The Paper Studio
Ink:  Colorbox Queues.
Accessories:  Spellbinders circles, MS branch punch, flower punches, Stickles, foam tape, Pebbles chalks, pearls.
