Quick Colour Combo Challenge

I really liked the tranquil vibe of this week's SCS colour challenge. I pulled out my gel-a-tins set, Wild Things. I used the 4 challenge colours to make a spectrum scene (order was Navy, Bordering Blue, Mellow Moss, then Artichoke). Next I stamped the grass stamp repeatedly with the moss dye ink. I let that dry, then did the wheat image in Artichoke. Lastly, I wanted a sentiment, so I took the "peace" sentiment from the Mini Fancy Flakes. I wanted to do something fun with the background, but I was trying to keep the card to all one vendor. So I grabbed a piece of scrunchy plastic that I had seen on my computer desk and dipped that into the mellow moss craft spot and used that to stamp the paper. Then I added in bordering blue craft ink. It makde a really neat background!
