Hello! I decided to combine two challenges into one - Dawn McVey's Color Challenge and Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch. This card took me so long that I might as well have made two different challenge cards! The colors were far, far, far outside my comfort zone, and the sketch had more elements than I would normally include on a card. So I stretched myself and in the end made a card that I'm mostly happy with. It just took me a couple of hours.
The colors made me think "tropical," so I did a batik technique. First I stamped and embossed the flowers on mulberry paper. Next I sponged ink around the flowers. Finally, I sandwiched the paper between some scratch paper and put a hot iron it. The heat melts the embossing powder so you're left with the batik look.
The finished card is 8.5"x 3.75".
Thanks for stopping by,
