Happy Thursday all! Long week here after a week on vacation last week! Can't seem to get back in the groove!! Oh well! You know Thursday means another great color challenge over at the ColorLab! Here are the colors:

Pool Party, So Saffron & Not Quite Navy

And, here is what I came up with.

I mounted my new Sweet Floral stamp and did the emboss resist technique. I used the First Edition DSP again. The card base is Not Quite Navy with a Pool Party & So Saffron layer behind the DSP. On the DSP, I stamped the Sweet Floral image with Versamark and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. Then I sponged color over: So Saffron for the flowers, Not Quite Navy for the stem & leaves, and Pool Party in any bare spots. The flower didn't pop quite as much as I would like so I'm guessing a darker color would be better. A Pool Party ribbon is attached around the bottom with a "Thanks So Much" from Sincere Salutations attached over on the Large & Scallop Oval punches.

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure to stop over by the ColorLab and see what the other Chemists came up with! And, play along!! We love to see your creations!!

I think this card is just STUNNING!! Amazing technique on what is simply a beautiful card. :)

I absolutely love this - it's such a great idea to use the First Edition paper. I've tried this technique on other papers and wasn't happy with how mine turned out - but I'm going to give this a try. I don't think there's anything wrong with the flowers. The subtleness is perfect. Thanks for the inspiration.
