Karen has given us the beautiful color combo of Turquoise, Daffodil and Mustard for the challenge this week. I had fun creating this card, especially the background.
I created the background with Distress Wild Honey ink and clear embossing. That was overstamped with Daffodil ink and clear embossed again. What flower areas not embossed were then sponged with Distress Tumbled Glass ink. The focal image was colored with Copic Markers.
Hope to see you make something with the colors too.
Thanks for looking.
