Today's color challenge on SCS features some colors I wouldn't have put together myself because of the soft and pale look to the combination. It's absolutely gorgeous, just not what I would "normally" do so it was a bit of a stretch for my creativity
To liven this up and add a little bit of elegance to it I used gold embossing powder. I gotta say that gold is my most frequently used embossing powder... I love the way it glitters and gives everything that little something extra. I colored the insides of the flowers with some of the lightest Copic shades of blue and green in my collection. The blue layer was paper pierced to form a dotted frame.
I cut three 1.5" squares and stamped the flowers off center, colored them and added irridescent ice glitter to the centers. The are all popped up on dimensionals. The sentiment was embossed on vanilla cardstock with distrssed edges.
This set is brand new from Gina K and was illustrated by Asela Hopkins. You really need to read the whole story behind this stamp set... it's a bit of a tear jerker so be prepared!! If you go to Asela's blog she has a post about her friend Daisy.
One more important thing about this stamp set...
When you purchase this set $4.00 of every retail set sold will go to the American Cancer Society until the end of August through a donation of part of the proceeds from both Gina K. Designs and Asela Hopkins. The stamps will be released on July 24.
Thanks for looking and don't forget to follow the links on Asela's blog for projects with these stamps.
