These are the colors we are challenged to use:
and this is what I came up with...I realized I didn't include the blue...better luck next time, huh?
hmmmm...looking at it now, I could have just used aqua buttons...I used a technique I've been wanting to try for a while...I heat embossed the flowers, then covered the entire piece of paper with Dusty Concord distress ink. Then using a mini mister filled with water and some perfect pearls, I sprayed the paper which gave it a shimmery finish. I know it's hard to tell, but it also gives it a kind of suede/leathery look. Kind of cool...
I tried it again using white paper for the background and pumice stone distress ink....I also used a border punch across the bottom. I liked my second attempt MUCH better:)
Don't they say practice makes perfect? Thanks for the challenge, 365 Cards:)
Have a GREAT day!
