Just for You - Colour Me...! Guest Designer!

Hi guys

Welcome to Week 2 of my Guest Designer role at Colour Me...!

Thanks to those of you that joined in last week, we had some fabulous entries for the Monochromatic Red challenge.  This week we have a striking colour combo for you, here it is if you fancy having a go...

And here's the card I made using these colours...

I started by stamping the gerbera image on some scrap cardstock in orange and then used a couple of my FlexMarkers to add some depth and shading.  On a separate piece I randomly stamped the flourish in the dark blue.  Both of these were then die cut using a tag die.  Next I cut a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than my card base and then used an embossing folder to create the pattern.  I then took a strip of vellum, stamped the sentiment in the same dark blue ink before heat embossing with clear embossing powder.  I decided to use the debossed side of the panel as it had a softer impression than the embossed side, then wrapped the vellum strip around this, securing on the back.  The panel was then adhered flat to the card base.  I offset the two tags, adhered them together to stop them shifting and then added a twine bow before adhering to the card.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Uniko Studio - Pure Florals: Gerbera; Paper Smooches - Reflections
  • Ink: Memento - Tangelo; Versa Color - Indigo
  • FlexMarkers: Mandarin, Pumpkin
  • Embossing Powder: Rubber Stampede - Clear
  • Embossing Folder: Darice - Wire Fence
  • Die: Clearly Besotted - Scalloped Tag Die
  • Twine: Hemptique
  • Vellum and cardstock from stash
