3 for 1

3 challenges on one card!
Today's card combines 3 different challenges.

The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches
The colors are from the Nacho Average Challenges

The cue card is "wet" from CASology

To help achieve the 'wet' look I decided to use the chevron embossing
folder with some marina mist ink. Spread the ink pad onto the folder,
then put the card stock in the folder and through the big shot.
I love this technique!
I love what texture can add to a card so I also added the 
pretty print embossing folder.

I love the color combo that Nacho Average Challenges chose.
I didn't have any perfect plum so I used some wisteria wonder instead.

I chose the Happy Watercolor stamp set. Not only because
I love it but also because it has the word 'water' in it and I thought
it would work with the 'wet' cue card challenge.

Matting everything on white helps to make each of the colors 'pop'.
Combining challenges is a great way to find inspiration - I highly
recommend it!
