Coloring Down the Lines - Serene Kindness

Well, this week, I decided to do something entirely different - out of my comfort zone.  I'm not quite sure how I feel about it, but I thought I would give it a whirl.  When I saw the inspiration photo, I wanted to recreate something that looked like it.  It reminds me of a misty evening sunset, or it could even be a misty morning sunrise.  Either way, the sun and sea is what I was aiming for.

Did you like what Carol did with these colors for the hop this week?  I do.  It's always fun seeing what everyone comes up with.  don't forget to hop on over to Joni's blog after you visit me and she will surely surprise you, I'm sure.

Below is the photograph we used for our inspiration.  The colors  are:  Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Soft Suede, Crisp Cantaloupe, and Blushing Bride.

So based on this inspiration, here is my creation for this week.  I hope you like it.  I'm still thinking about it.

Paper:  very vanilla
Ink:  wisteria wonder, perfect plum, elegant eggplant, soft suede, crisp cantaloupe, blushing bride
Stamp Sets:  by the sea, kinda eclectic
Accessories:  gold embossing powder

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope to have some more fun stuff for you later in the week.
