Two Challenges

Hey Bleeps (blog peeps),

I combined two challenges this week for my card today. One is the color challenge over at Global Design Project

GDP145_Colour_Challenge

and the other is the sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps.

Here’s what I came up with.

I embossed the roses in white embossing powder onto watercolor paper. Then water colored them in with Mint Macaron and Grapefruit Grove inks using my Aquapainter. I stamped the sentiment in the Fresh Fig ink. Not sure if you can tell, but I embossed the background Whisper White panel at the top with a retired embossing folder called Woodgrain. The die cuts behind the roses are from the matching Thinlits from the Petal Palette stamp set.

Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful July 4th celebration! It rained all day long here, so we just chilled and ate, lol. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed weekend! 😉

  1. Gorgeous, Holley – what a great element for the sketch! Love those flowers layered over the diecut element – I’m totally trying that! Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps!

  2. So lovely! I would not have imagined those colors working well together for a sprig of flowers, but you have combined them beautifully. Thank you for joining Sunday Stamps this week.
