one layer, three colours

20170906_102047

Hi everyone. I have made a quick card today, as I am just about to go to work for the afternoon, and back reasonably late this evening. I wanted to play with the colours for the current challenge from CAS Colours and Sketches – Always Artichoke, Fresh Fig, and Tangerine Tango. I think those colours are absolutely gorgeous on their own, but when put together – love it.

I had a delivery from Stampin Up yesterday – well, I say delivery…….UPS sometimes struggle to find me, and I don’t realise I have a package until I check my tracking through my Stampin Up demonstrator to find they have tried 4 or 5 days……and still can’t find me. I mean – I live on the only road in the middle of a wood with 30 houses – how difficult can that be? Anyway, I had to go to the local depot to pick it up yesterday, so I just had to make time to play.

I liked the look of this stamp, but didn’t realise that the word is actually quite a solid image. I wanted to colour the word, but when I realised it was solid I decided to stamp it in Fresh Fig, quickly put some clear embossing powder on it, and then heat embossed. Even though I used water-colour card, I think it came out quite nicely.

I then coloured the roses in Tangerine Tango, and the leaves in Always Artichoke and there we have it. However, after I had photographed it – thank goodness afterwards – the card blew down into some wet leaves, and of course I swiped my fingers over it to clean the water…………..and I now have a nicely smudged water-colour image now!!!20170906_111231

I am sure I can still save the card, but will have to think about what I do with it. Trust me!!!! Well, as least you can see the Fresh Fig colour coming out of the words.
