Today I’m joining in the TGIF Challenges colour challenge #375. How could I not – just a ‘me’ kind-of colour scheme!

The idea for this card started with the embossed panel across the flowers. I coloured the debossed side with Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends. This was fun to colour and gave me another fun way to use our embossing folders. I used a label from the All That dies to cut it out and then arranged it to create 2 halves bordering the flowers.

With July being World Watercolouring Month I coloured the flowers with some Watercolour pencils and blended it out with a Color Lifter. The popped up flowers were die cut from Basic White Cardstock which I had blended with Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo inks.

A fun striped border to edge the top of the focal panel was created with a ruler and Stampin’ Write Markers in the colours of the challenge. If you haven’t tried this, I encourage to try it in different colours or ombre tones to give your projects unique backgrounds.
