JAI 91 - Colour Challenge

It's Friday and that means another great challenge at Just Add Ink...and this week it is a colour challenge...
Each month as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator we receive a monthly newsletter called Impressions which includes product information, art challenges, ideas, techniques and advice for demonstrators. Well the one I received the other day reminded me of a great technique that I like to use called Emboss Resist and so my card for this week's challenge was inspired by a card I saw in the newsletter using this technique.

With this card I first stamped the Medallion image with VersaMark ink, then embossed it with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder. I sponged over it using Cherry Cobbler ink and a little Blushing Bride ink. Then using my French Script background stamp (now retired) and Jet Black StazOn ink (my added neutral colour) I stamped over the emboss resist image. I just loved the results and the added texture.

I then finished off my card with some ruffled Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and added a centre flower layered with Basic Black and Blushing Bride, punched using the Boho Blossom punch. To this I added a beautiful Antique Brad and two tiny tags using the Tiny Tags stamp set and the coordinating punch. Love how everything coordinates with Stampin' Up! products.

Project Supplies:
Stamps: Medallion, French Script, Tiny Tags
Cardstock: Blushing Bride, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Basic Black 
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Blushing Bride, Jet Black StazOn, Versamark
Accessories: Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder, Heat Tool, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Antique Brad, Tiny Tags and Boho Blossoms Punches, Sponge

Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you get a chance to hop on over to Just Add Ink to check out the gorgeous work from the rest of the DT and to link up your own entry.

Have a great weekend.
