Curtain Call Act 64 - Guest Designer

Hello!  I've been itching to post this card, but I've had to wait until the start of the Curtain Call Color Challenge {Act 64}.  It's the first time I've played with this Sugar Nellie stamp and I'm thrilled with how it turned out... I hope you think so too! 

I watercoloured the image using the challenge colours (except white), and I just love how the Marina Mist blended into the Pacific Point for the sky...

And, as you can see, I black embossed the image onto watercolour paper.  It makes it so much easier to colour and I really like the look too.

Here are the challenge colours for Curtain Call Color Challenge {Act 64}.

The Curtain Call Crew have samples to show you today, too, so make sure you stop by to see:
