Our Watercooler Challenge team came up with this awesome colour combo. I love colour challenges, as usually they force me to use colours I don't often gravitate to. But this one uses one of my all-time faves - Crumb Cake!
I think Crumb Cake goes with just about any colour, and particularly those with a red/purple hue. So I decided to make Crumb Cake the dominant colour in my sample, with just touches of Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight. I also used some Pistachio Pudding.
This card also uses a few techniques - Two-Step Stamping using the Stamp-a-ma-jig, marker-to-stamp inking and embossing. Stamping off technique was used for the bottom layer of the roses. This means inking the stamp, then stamping it once onto scrap paper and then stamping it - without re-inking - onto the cardstock. This gives you a lighter shade of the colour. When you stamp the top detail layer, use the ink full strength to give it dimension. Two stamp sets are used - Stippled Blossom and Bloom With Hope (the sentiment).
I love the soft look of the Crumb Cake roses, don't you?
Here's a close-up of the roses and the Pearl Basic Jewels in the centers.
