Just Peachy - Er, I Mean Beachy!!!


contest_banner_500a1

One of this month's Hero Arts challenges is a color challenge using  3 -4 of the colors in the new Just Beachy ink cube pack:

just-beachy-color-challenge1

I don't own any inks close to soft cantaloupe and after photographing my card I think the patterned paper I used just might be a bit too peachy:



Used my favorite inking technique on the stamped panel.  After white embossing Hero Arts CG330 Flower Dot Pattern on a piece of watercolor paper I dabbed Ranger broken china, peeled paint and picket fence distress stains all over and spritzed heavily with a water and perfect pearls mix.  It's difficult to see in the pic but I also stamped the Flower Dot Pattern in white on the eight vellum die cut scalloped circles.  After crumpling all of the circles into a ball I flattened them out, stacked them and secured them together with a Basic Grey brad.  The sentiment was die cut using Cricut cart Beyond Birthdays.
Other Supplies Used:  Papertrey ink white cs for card base, W R Memory Keepers corner rounder

Thanks for all your supportive comments!!

OK, I have stared at your gorgeous card long enough, now I need to comment! (It may have been ten minutes, maybe fifteen, since I checked in?) The colors, the embossing, the Perfect Pearls, the vellum flower...oh my goodness, such gorgeous goodness all in one card! You should post a warning before we are knocked over by your gorgeous cards, Robin!

Wow, Robin - that background is spectacular! I can't take my eyes off of it. I am not crazy about trying these colors, but you nailed it! Love that you made your own flower. Now, how do you fit that into an envelope?! Ha! Thanks for sharing.
