CIC - Colours ...

.... Hello and good morning! It's time for our new challenge at Cupcake Inspirations - CIC#364 and we have some really lovely colours for you to play with - Grass, Black and Goldenrod. Here's my take on the colours:

Stamps: Impression Obsession - Damask Flower; Clearly Besotted - A Little Sentimental
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black, Grey Flannel
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Crushed Curry; Copics; Wink of Stella - Clear; Clear Embossing Powder; SU Circle punches

I stamped the image on some white card and coloured it with Copic markers. I stamped it again on the card and heat embossed it with clear powder to give a crisp, bold image. I used several circle punches to select parts of the image which I then adhered to the card - spotlighting certain areas. Over at Just Us Girls - JUGS#347 - they want to see the spotlight technique, so I'm playing along with them. I used a clear Wink of Stella brush on all the coloured areas. I finished the front of the card by stamping a simple sentiment and added a hand drawn border. On the inside I cut a piece of dark yellow card for the mat layer and stamped a portion of the image in grey on the white panel.
