Kwernerdesign.com - Colour Inspiration #17

This is my first entry for Kristina Werner's Colour Inspiration Challenges, For (I suppose 17 lol) weeks now I've admired the beautiful colour combos that she has used and I finally gave in and did one, normally I am so late that I don't bother but this time I realised I had all day today (plus some if you count the time difference) to finish it so I had no excuse.
I embossed, then watercoloured the berries from Oh So Lovely, using Ink Pads and my Aquapainter, but I wanted to build up some colour in the shadows and I haven't mastered the aquapainter well enough to get the look I wanted, so I used the fine tip of my SW Markers to build up the colour, I then lightly sponged some Regal Rose over the Whisper White and rubbed the edges in Rose Red.

Stamps: Oh So Lovely, Happy Everything
Ink: Rich Regals SW Markers, Soft Subtles SW Markers, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Versamark
Cardstock: Rose Red, Sage Shadow, Regal Rose, Whisper White
Accessories: Black EDP, Regal Rose 5/8" Grosgrain
