CTD379 Pink Paris

Hi all!  Happy Friday!  When I saw the current Color Throwdown challenge, I knew what I wanted to do.  First, here’s the swatch for this week.

And here’s my card…

If it appears that this is curving in, your eyes are not deceiving you.  My watercolor paper warped a lot and a night under my die bin didn’t help flatten it as I’d hoped.  But I love how it turned out!  I used my SAI watercolor markers to simply color a beautiful pink sky.  I then cut Paris out of Curious Metallic Gold Leaf.  I adhered the completed scene to a card base of Gold Leaf as well.  I stamped a sentiment from Tickled Pink in VersaFine Onyx and embossed it with clear embossing powder {This is my new fave way to do sentiments!!!}  Keeping it simple, I just added in a few sequins.
