Vicki (vdutchr on Splitcoaststampers) gave us a beautiful color combo for this week's color challenge: Tempting Turquoise, Cajun Craze, and Kraft. Here's my design using these colors.

I stamped the image onto kraft cardstock three times, watercolored and cut each one out, and popped them up with dimensionals.  Here's a close-up of the dimension.

I like how watercoloring directly on the kraft toned down the brightness of the turquoise, which I thought blended better with the more earthy colors of the kraft and rust.  I added a few white dots with a Signo gel pen on the flower center.
