Getting back into card making

I picked up rubber and ink for the first time in about three weeks to make today's card. 

And just like riding a bike, you don't forget technique or basic rules.  But you may forget color combos, aqua painting and masking (you shouldn't attempt a 180 Barspin on your bike if you haven't ridden in 20 years should you??).

I'm using cameo coral, ruby red, and old olive cardstock (two of these colors are retiring at the end of the month).  I also used a retiring set, embrace life.  And I had to look up the color combo, brush up on my masking, and figure out how much or how little H2O to put in my aqua painter.

The layout is from Mojo Monday:
