Hero Arts Out Of The Box Flower

I've discovered a color combination I really like, Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral and Ruby Red!

This flower is a Hero Arts stamp that I used Watercolor H2O's on. At least I think that's what they're called, they have lots of sparkle. My color combination was quite by accident because I started with the flower image and no real plan for what I was going to do with it. The colors of H2O's I used are Rose Gold, Moss Green and Sunflower.

As I was painting the flower I thought that Ruby Red might be a close match, I also looked at my SU color wheel and that's how this color combination came together. The background stamps are Stampin' Up!s Weathered and Floral inked with Ruby Red and stamped on Cameo Coral. I sponged a little Ruby Red around the edges and on the Floral panel I sponged just a little Close To Cocoa on top of the sponged Ruby Red. My sentiment is from a PAPERTREYink. set and I haven't perfected stamping inside the Hodgepodge Hardware yet but I'll keep practicing.
