SPCC Challenge #10
I hadn't seen this SPCC challenge blog before this morning, but following a comment on one of my cards, which included an invitation to join in the fun, I decided to check it out!
This is a combo of colours that I would never have thought of in a million years, so it was quite a challenge to construct a card around it!!
I didn't have any Stampin Up card so I used similar shades from my supply.
The image is from one of my new Penny Black stamps recently purchased from the Paper Mill Shop on offer... Buy 2 Get 1 Free!
The background paper has turned out rather darker than it originally started out, as I over-stamped it with a floral stamp from My Mind's Eye using Tea Dye Distress ink. I coloured the image with Derwent Watercolour Pencils and a water brush.
The sentiment is Hero Arts, the embossing and flower are Cuttlebug and the leaves are from a Leonie Em punch.
