Spring Challenge-Flowers and Stripes

This is my second post for the Spring Challenge that is being hosted by Mateja at Purple Glitters. You can read more about her VERY creative challenge and the rules here.  For this post entitled flowers and stripes, I chose to use the color combination of blue and purple.  Once a color combination is chosen for a particular challenge item, it can't be used again.  So, you have to plan wisely.  I think it was a great color combination.

I used Cerulean Seascape from Finger Paints for the tips and striped it with Milani's Violet Dash.  A few dots in Color Club White and a finishing ouch of a flower to tie it all together.  I really love the final product.  I just adore these colors together.  The official post date is the 18th but I will not have time tomorrow, so I am getting it done now.

Please stop over to see what the other ladies who are in the challenge are doing tomorrow...
