Not having a lot of StampinUp products and in particular inks I have to play around to match colour challenges. A good friend sent me some card stock which makes it easier and I used a piece of smoky slate to cut the frame which is from Crafters Companion. I cut and then embossed the edges so they would show more and went over the raised bits with some sparkle. My free choice colour is obviously red and I added a red border to the frame as well as used it for the holly berries. The stamp is from an older set by GKD called Dashing and I used Distress Oxides to colour it. The closest ink to Coastal Cabana is Broken China but I found it a bit too blue so I mixed a small amount of cracked Pistachio into it and it made a huge difference. I even had enough left over to drag some CS through and got an interesting background piece to use later. As well I used a small amount of an opal blaze on the leaves so they glimmer and shine when card is tilted. I added a few sequins for some additional interest. It is a small card 4″ x 4 1/4″ so I’ll have to make an envelope to go with it.
