Dynamic Twofer!

 Here's another two for this week's Dynamic Duo color challenge:  Certainly Celery and Pretty-in-Pink.  But I also used the sketch challenge over on Stamping 411!  A twofer!  I love it!

Do you see the celery?  It's in the leaves, of course!  I started with a base of Crumb Cake.  Then I used an embossed layer of Blushing Bride, and before you say it, I know it isn't Pretty-in-Pink, but a new addition to the Dynamic Duo blog tells me that I can use similar colors, and since I have pleated ribbon in Blushing Bride, I decided to go for Blushing Bride instead of the Pretty-in Pink.  Creative license.

Next, I used a layer of Crumb Cake DSP (it's old... back when they called it Kraft).  Then I stamped the image from Apothecary Art and used the framelit to cut it out.  Next I  colored in the image with... no, not my markers but instead with a Q-tip!  What?  I know!!!  So cool.  To color in the leaves I used my blender pen and Certainly Celery ink.

Here's a close up of the image...

Thanks for looking!
