LIM & Colour Q

I told you I'd be back and here is my second post of the day! This time a card made specifically with this LIM challenge 'Scallops' in mind. Before making this card I popped onto the Colour Q challenge site and I was really keen to have a go at their colour challenge which is Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Always Artichoke, Lucky Limeade and Whisper White. So here is my card that fits the criteria for both challenges. I started by using my brand new Simply Scored Borders Plate to emboss two rows of scallops onto a piece of Whisper White. I masked this off with a piece of copy paper before stamping my three Wisteria Wonder flowers, from Summer Silhouettes and added the stamens in Always Artichoke. I masked off the flowers with some pre-cut post-it note flowers (I keep these in with my stamps so they can be used several times) before stamping the leaves in Lucky Limeade, then stamped again without re-inking to give different shades. After removing the masks I embossed a straight line above the scallops. The sentiment, from Teeny Tiny Wishes, was stamped in Always Artichoke, punched out with the Small Oval and matted onto a Wisteria Wonder Scallop Oval which had been paper pierced. A small loop of Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon was added and the sentiment placed on top with dimensionals. Three small flowers were stamped in Pool Party and three butterflies from Beautiful Wings Embosslits were added and a few Basic Pearls finished the card off.
Thank you for stopping by and, if you pop back tomorrow you will see my Simples Sunday cards for this week. Take care and keep warm x
