What is your opinion about a Stampin’ Up! color combination of SU Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive, and Lost Lagoon? I think they are beautiful together. I used the SU Thoughts and Prayers and Pendant Park to create a scene with these colors.
Splitcoaststampers had these colors as its Color Challenge for today (CC569). Here is the card I submitted for the challenge.
UPDATE: My card was selected as one of the favorites for the week ending February 14, 2016
The scene is of squirrels enjoying the park bench (lol), and it’s in the shape of an oval (which gave one extra points if an oval was used). I added a floral image on the top left and bottom right that I embossed with white embossing powder. It’s quite difficult to see that.
I covered the two image stamps with VersaMark and ink and embossed them with clear embossing powder. This was to prevent mixing inks while sponging for the background. I have to say that I’m disappointed with a couple of products I used as the ink I added to the Whisper White card stock edges bled onto the front of the card stock. Then forgetting about the SU ink serving as a base for embossing, I got white embossing powder on the scene while embossing the floral images on the white portion of the card. My mistake.
