SDC 2 - Colour Challenge with Stampotique stamps

I have a problem.  A very nice problem, mind.  I had pre-ordered some of the new Wendy Vecchi stamps from Wendy at The Stamp Attic and she was doing a give-away for a set of stamps to one winner (and one for Tim's new stamps and Wendy's second book) and I WON the Wendy draw.  So my problem, is, which set do I choose......... Yikes. That's a problem.  Thanks sooo much Wendy and to Iris, the customer who got co-opted into doing the draw for Wendy.  Yipeeee!!

On another note - it's the second Stampotique challenge -  it's a colour challenge of rose, yellow and  mossy green and using  Stampotique stamps.  Here is my entry:




I used "Girl With a Heart Purse" stamped on scrap card, coloured with pink watercolour pencils.  I covered a tall card with a piece of yellow and green spotty paper but there isn't much yellow so I added some yellow via some sequin waste and mustard seed distress ink.  The pink flowers are made on claudine hellmuth's sticky back canvas - I mixed red and white to get a rosy pink colour which I then cuttlebugged and sprayed with marshmallow glimmer mist for a bit of sparkle.    I don't have any stampotique text stamps but thought it needed something so wrote the words with a gel pen.
