Pin It

Colour Challenge No. 6

Each Friday I'm going to spin my Colour Coach without looking and find a new colour combination.

Today's combination is: - Taken with Teal, Tempting Turquoise, Blush Blossom and a Neutral



As you can see I'm still enjoying using Botanical blooms. You have until the 28 February to place your $120 order and receive the Sale-A-Bration set of your choice for free. Perhaps it's time I started a random Stamp Set challenge. LOL!

I used an Embossed Resist technique to this card. To get the texture on the background I used a direct to paper technique with my Taken with Teal Classic ink pad dragging it across the cardstock. The gaps were filled in with the same ink pad and a Stampin' Sponge. Their is a tutorial here for Embossed Resist on the Splitcoast Stampers site.

Supplies used All Stampin' Up!® -
Stamp Set - Botanical Blooms

Cardstock - Taken With Teal, Tempting Turquoise and Blush Blossom
Ink - Taken with Teal, Versamark
Other - 5/8" Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin' Sponges, Heat Tool, Clear Embossing Powder, Mat Pack, Paper Cutter, Paper Snips, Adhesive.

To play along create your card using the colours listed above or the closest you have in your collection, save to your blog or website and send me a comment with your link. If you don't have a website/blog attach your card to an EMail and I will display it here with the next weeks challenge.

There is no deadline on these challenges please join in whenever you please.

If you would like to expand you cardstock collection, each week I will be offering a cardstock share consisting of 8 A4 sheets of each of the three colours listed above (does not include the neutral). There will be three places and I will contact you re payment once all of the places have been filled. NZ resident only please.

Email me to reserve your place.

See Challenge no. 5 - Places are still available in this weeks cardstock share also.
