JAI7

Here is my entry for JAI7 - A colour challenge using Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion and So Saffron. I love all these colours... on their own or with other colours... but together this is a tricky little combo! They are all quite strong colours so it is easy to go a bit gaudy with this colour combo. I hope I have done it justice!

This is a little close up of the emboss resist technique I have used. I heat embossed the upsy daisy image using clear embossing powder on glossy card stock. I then brayered the Pink Passion ink over the image and wiped the ink off the daisies with a tissue.

And here is my completed card! I really love using the whimsical words stamps on my cards at the moment. There is a sentiment in there for every occasion (almost!) and the swirly writing is so easy on the eye.

Supplies used: Stamps: Upsy Daisy and Whimsical words (sale-a-bration set only available til March 31)

Ink: Pink Passion

Cardstock: Whisper white, Glossy, Tempting turquoise, Green galore

Tools: Eyelet border punch

Happy Stamping!

Love, Claire

Wow, you certainly didn't shy away from that very bright pink. I love that you've done the upsy daisy in white as a contrast rather than vice versa.
Very nice work!
Cheers

Wow - that looks amazing with the image in white backed with Pink Passion. Gorgeous! I'll have to try this one. My brayer and I have a love/hate relationship. (I love it, it hates me!!)
