Papertrey Ink 7th Anniversary - Building Blocks Challenge - Take 2 (Sort of)

So here is the Take 2 for today's challenge!

If you saw the previous post, you know my color choices were intimidating a bit, so I picked again.  (If you missed that post, scroll down and check it out - I really like that card!)

I was all set to go with the True Black, Rasperry Fizz, Spring Moss and Harvest Gold.  Then I didn't have any black card stock, not one piece!  How is that possible??  So I had to use the closest thing I had - Smoky Shadow.

My thought was to stamp in white, then watercolor over.  Then I stamped them in the wrong direction for the sketch.  Ugh!!!

Then, watercolor didn't really work so well on my white ink.  So its just meh.  If I can locate the Stazon white that is floating around here somewhere, I might give it a go again.  We'll see...

Cardstock - Smoky Shadow, White - Papertrey Ink
Stamps - Beautiful Butterflies - Papertrey Ink
Ink - Frost White - Colorbox; Versamark - Tsukineko
Watercolors - Inktense Pencils - Derwert
Twine - The Twinery
Buttons - Papertrey Ink
Other - Black embossing powder

Papertrey Ink 7th Anniversary: Building Blocks Challenge Take 1 (sort of)

I was super excited for today's challenge!  9 building blocks collected from the DTs blogs - great, right.

Until I got to the color selections.  My first try got me Harvest Gold, Rasperry Fizz, Spring Moss and a neutral of True Black.  I decided I would give it a try, but was definitely intimidated enough to roll the dice (or random number generator) again.

The second round of color choices didn't go much better - Dark Chocolate, Enchanted Evening, Hibiscus Burst and Soft Stone as the neutral.  I figured this would probably be easier than the first group with the technique in inlaid die cuts.  I found some patterned papers that roughly matched the colors and die cut them and the Soft Stone with the Happy Harlequin Die.  

Here's the result:

I was not prepared to like my pink, navy, gray and brown card, but I kind of love it!

Stay tuned for Take 2!
