Mod Squad - Teal & Purple

Dear Ones~
Whew, I wasn't sure if I was going to get this post done before the deadline for the Mod Squad Challenge this week. We were asked to use teal and purple, 2 of my favorite colors together!!!!

Here's my card:
I stamped the GKD Fabulous Frame by Melanie Muenchinger onto GKD Turquoise Sea card stock so I didn't have to color in the borders. The oval was cut out of the Fabulous Frame image, and then the frame was popped up on the white card stock so that the oval is recessed. I used my Brusho Crystal Colors for the awesome, vibrant watercolor. You can't see it too well, but I splattered gold over the colors. The watercolors were done on watercolor paper, and then I paper pieced it onto the Fabulous Frame image. The hummingbird is colored with Distress Markers on watercolor paper and fussy cut.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White and Turquoise Sea Card Stock
GKD Fabulous Frame Stamp Set
GKD Stamper's Favorites Stamp Set
Brusho Crystal Colors in Turquoise and Purple
Spellbinder Shapabilities Feather Die
Distress Markers
Fine Tech Pearl Colors for the Gold Splatters
Delica Golden Glitz on the Feathers
GKD Fine Gold Embossing Powder
Wink of Stella
Liquid Pearls in Peacock

I am also entering this card in the STV Monday Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments. Stay warm (and well), my friends!!!
