This is for Color Challenge 220 and it did challenge me. I knew I wanted to use this stamp set for my BIL's birthday and I thought I'd give a recent Color Challenge a whirl. I did not find it easy to do with these stamps. I guess that's what a challenge is all about! Hope it turned out okay. Some watercoloring on the lighthouse. There is a bit of Weathered background stamping on the Pumpkin Pie strip, might be hard to see. I sponged Bashful Blue on the card base & also around the lighthouse layer after tearing the edges. Lighthouse top layer and circle are raised up by Stampin Dimensionals. Magic Mesh is something I've had for a long time. It can be easily colored by a brayer or sponge. I wonder if it is still around. I chose to leave it white on this card. I guess I was thinking ocean, fishing net, nautical. TFL

I really like the color combination on this one! It looks great. I love the way you colored the lighthouse, incorporating the challenge colors. And the texture from the background stamp on the pumpkin Pie is perfect!
