613 Avenue Create Challenge 7 - Color

H, Everyone,

There's a new challenge at 613 Avenue Create - COLOR!  This is our first color challenge, and we ask you to use brown, pink and cream or white.  Our DT has some beautiful inspiration highlighting our  sponsors Eureka and My Heart Pieces.  I used Granny Time from My Heart Pieces:

All the items used are from my stash:  Card stock, DP, ink and sentiment are Close to My Heart; small flower, fiskars punch; large flower, unknown.

As you can see, I didn't color the image.  Instead I sponged Tea Dye and Antique Linen Distress Inks and CTMH Chocolate over the image for a dusty antique look.  I love that sentiment, in this case, it speaks to a grandmother's special love.  I'm entering challenges at Word Art Wednesday - Love/Anything Goes and Challenges for Everybody - Challenge #14 Anything Goes.

You'll want to see who won last week's challenge, so go take a look!
