A COLOR CHALLENGE FROM LEE

This is the card that I made for Lee's first color challenge. The colors to be used were Orchid Opulence, Lovely Lilac, and Mellow Moss. I promise those where the colors I used. I just need to figure out how to get a scan that shows the colors accurately.

The base of my card is the Orchid Opulence, the first layer is Lovely Lilac, though in my scan it is showing very blue! I used the Mellow Moss in the strip that goes over the tow. The mottled background is the polished stone technique Using these colors and a bit of yellow as well. I colored some white flowers from the Pretties kit using my chalk pastels. and used a bit of mellow moss checked ribbon form my "leaves".

Thanks for the challenge Lee! I look forward to others.

I've never tried polished stone technique before either - it looks wonderful here, Suzanne!

I have seen Oatmeal Scotchies mentioned on both your blog and Lee's and am intrigues - what are they?
