Colour Q #348 and Inkspirational #111

I don't often do color challenges because I usually find them difficult but I decided it was time to challenge myself.  Colour Q is the perfect place to start and their colors for the latest challenge intrigued me.  

I love that bathing suit and the big orange flowers which inspired this.

I brought out Altenew to play and watercolored the images with Distress Inks.  For the striped border I used a SSS stencil and Chipped Sapphire.   I masked the largest flower to stamp the leaves and smaller flowers, which makes my card eligible for the Inkspirational challenge.

Thanks for dropping by.

Great job with the color challenge! And expert job masking-- I assumed the stamp came in one piece! Bravo!
