Just Us Girls #653 – Color Week

Late last week my Spellbinders order arrived and this EB folder was part of it. I had to test it out so I used it on a white piece of CS and then set it aside. Yesterday I took another look at it and decided to add a bit of colour using distress inks and a sponge. Initially it was more yellow with a hint of orange, but after seeing this challenge I went over it again using ground espresso so it has more brown on it. I cut it down to the panel used here and added it to an orange base and then onto the card front. Then I found this GKD incentive stamp that is one of the first I received from her and using Tombow markers and huffing I stamped each section of the flowers and stems in blue, orange and brown. I did each bit separately trying to keep the inks from mixing. Once ready I added more colour using the markers and the blending tool that comes with them and then I fussy cut and added it the embossed layer. I wanted to say Happy Birthday and remembered the vertical stamp set from GKD so I gold heat embossed the sentiment on the side. I wish I could have fussy cut more of the white area from the flowers but knew if I tried I would likely mess it up so left it alone. All in all I’m happy with the result and it wasn’t a difficult card to make.

  1. The blue flowers is a nice pop of color against your lovely background I really like that embossing folder. The vertical birthday greeting is perfect for your design.

  2. This is a great card. I had to look at it twice to notice that the colored flowers were layered on top. You did a wonderful job putting this together. The vertical sentiment is perfect.
