Love Letters to Lily - Gingersnap Creations Color Challenge

This is my piece for the Gingersnap Creations Color Challenge along with supplies I used in creating it. "Vintage Hues" is the theme, and I created a Glimmer Mist background on watercolour paper by spraying through table lace with Vintage Pink, Rose Tea, and Sand. I also sprayed the lace with Glimmer Mist - a foolproof way to have coordinating embellishments! I completed my piece with a collage of stamped images: a picture of the English Edwardian actress and singer Lily Elsie from Stampfrancisco, and stamps of letters from Paperbag Studios and Oxford Impressions. The challenge runs until Dec. 19th so you have plenty of time to create a piece and enter!
