Another Color Challenge

....this time a Ways To Use It from SCS!
The challenge was to use a color combo site to get out of the box and use new colors!
Something I always need help with! I used the site Julia suggested cause I hadn't before!
This is the site KULER, The color combo I used is the AVI of the person on THIS page.
I just loved the way those colors popped out at me!
I interpreted them as Very Vanilla, Ocean Tides, Pure Poppy and Close to Cocoa!
This is what I came up with.
I was in a coloring mood so I chose this image from the SU set For Father. I needed something that would have red in it and I could use the other colors!
I am working at getting better at my watercoloring! It's a slow process. My new Koi waterbrush seems to help - it has a very fine tip! This is a BIG card! It is 6.5x5.5 I needed it big to get my image and sentiment on it! I have finally started using my nesties and spellbinders dies on a regular basis and I LOVE them! I use them in a Sizzix Big Kick!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
