Becky Oehlers, you're killing me. How do you make it look so effortless to combine these colors? I thought I'd give your challenge a try this time, and I thought I had it all figured out at 7:30 this morning. Here it is 3:00 pm, and I'm finally finished. You have stretched me to my limits, but I'm happy to say, I enjoyed the process. Thank you for the challenge after all.
This challenge specified a 5x7 card with a Spring Rain mat of 3x4.5, a scallop border, white embossed flower on Raspberry Fizz, and a flourish on Terra Cotta Tile. Oh, and throw in some rhinestones, too. Well, I don't have Terra Cotta Tile, so I used the emboss resist technique and sponged SU Real Rust and Ruby Red over the flourishes. I like the mottled background it gives, so I softened the Spring Rain and scalloped border with some white ink. Several hundred flowers later, and I finally decided on a few from Petal Power with flat rhinestone stickers in the centers. I cut out the flourish and attached it on the blue, but now it occurs to me that I could have embossed it there as well. Whoops.
