Wet Paper Water Lilies

OK so this morning I made this and worked for over 1 hr trying to get it loaded. This afternoon I finally figured out (with Shannon's help) that my router box was the problem. I disconnected it and ran my internet straight to my PC tower and viola I was back on line. So Here I am late this evening finally getting this loaded. This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 292 - Pirouette Red Pizzazz. I love these colors together with one exception (real red). I do not know what is going on with my ink pad but it is ooee gooee and in a mess. I went to work this morning with red hands. LOL. Anyway, I also used Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 294 - Wet Paper Stamping. My image is from Flourishes "Water Lily" set. I love this darling set and the images in it were perfect for these challenges.
I stamped the largest lily in pink then in red after my wet watercolor paper was dry.
My layout is from Monday's LIZZIE ANNE DESIGNS SKETCH # 146. I punched the scalloped circle and doodled around the edges then popped it up. My lily is cut out and popped up. I crumbled the top panel of basic gray dp in my hand then smoothed it out for Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 88 - Crinkled. I distressed the edges of my pear pizzazz base panel with my scissors and ink distressed the edges of my dp panels with pink pirouette for today's FLOURISHES TIMELESS TUESDAY CHALLENGE # 88 - Ink and Edge Distressing. I tied a pink and red ribbon on the bottom panel.
