Teal is my favorite color.  Gray and teal work so beautifully together so it was no question as to what color I wanted to use for Susan's One Layer Wednesday challenge this week.

First up though is some color inspiration I have in my file using these colors together.  This watercolor painting is simply gorgeous!

Here is my project for the challenge:
(I'm horrible at photographing my cards at night under artificial light.  Sorry!)

 Just a tiny touch of teal:
I stamped the medallion and the sentiment in ColorBox pigment ink in 'Wild Hare' and heat-embossed both with clear embossing powder.  It gave a nice polished look and gave a bit of dimension to an otherwise flat one layer card.
I had to resist the urge to stamp the sentiment in black, but after seeing Susan's cards with grey sentiments I was totally inspired to try it.  Not bad, eh?

Stamps: PTI Mehndi Medallion, Botanical Silhouettes
Ink: ColorBox 'Wild Hare'
Cardstock: PTI white

I'm in love ♥ It's so simple yet it's so amazing! I've seen several of these medallions and doilies being used on cards and I'm very tempted to buy a set. I love the tiny teal rinestone in the middle of the medallion!
