Color Challenge #88

This is the second week I have participated in the color challenges at Color Throwdown.  This week is challenge #88 and the colors are Tangerine Tango, So Saffron and Basic Gray.  Well, I don't have any Tangerine Tango, so I just used orange.  I did use the other colors.  I have to admit this one was a hard one.  I knew I wanted to use the set, A Flower for All Seasons again, because the sunflowers are perfect for the orange and yellow.

I used my aqua brush and ink pads to color my image that was stamped in Jet Black Staz On ink on Whisper White cardstock.

I wanted to use orange ribbon and I only had some from my stash that had some brown in it.  I decided the little bit of brown would be okay.  This is not one of my favorite cards, but at least I am challenging myself to use colors I would not use.  Hee hee!
