Time for another Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC461) and week 2 for me as a Guest Designer for the Color Challenge! What lovely colors we have this week…Tempting Turquoise, Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantaloupe with a dessert of a frame (either stamped, cut out or drawn). So on my card I used a huge amount of a cantaloupe clone and tiny amounts of the turquoise & cabana. Instead of white, I used ivory for my neutral and for dessert, I included a die cut window frame.
I stamped the greeting, die cut and with the die in place, lightly sponged on the pink & salmon inks ( I don’t have the exact colors so I used a combo to achieve the color). The lily corners were stamped several times, colored w/ Copics and fussy cut along w/ 1 small butterfly. The cantaloupe background piece was spritzed w/ bleach to get the splotchy look.
After die cutting the window frame out of ivory, I added a piece of vellum behind it before attaching all the pieces. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
