Slice of Life

I got this Level 1 hostess set with my last order.  It's called Slice of Life.  I haven't done a whole lot of coloring lately so I decided to get it out and ink it up!  I've never tried to watercolor with Concord Crush before.  I found it a little difficult because as soon as I added water the ink separated a little into a bluish color.  I kept adding ink and eventually I ended up with this.  I think I like  I die cut the focal image with an oval Nestie.  The color combo is Concord Crush, Marina Mist and Pear Pizzazz.  I stamped the background piece with Itty Bitty Backgrounds to give it a little dimension.  The scallop strips were die cut with the Tasteful Trim die.  The sentiment is from the Level 2 hostess set Something to Celebrate.   I finished with a button.  Thanks for stopping by!
