CAS Colours & Sketches #264 - Colour Challenge

Fiona's colours for this week's CC&S challenge made me long for a hot summer day.  When I was blending the Pumpkin Pie and Rose Red inks, all I could think about was orange and raspberry sherbet!!

I started by creating a background using heat embossing with white EP and blending inks around the tulips and Bermuda Bay dots.  The stamp is Abstract Florals from Right at Home stamps.  I die cut PTI's Large Tulip Tag Die
from the paper and layered it on top of MFT's LJD Rectangle Peek A Boo Window die. (Which I have been using a lot lately!!)  A strip of washi tape is on paper under a hello die cut, some Wink of Stella, and then Rose Red ribbon finishes off the card.

  8. Fun card and love how you used the colours. Have to admit that it was only once I read how you made the card that I saw it was a tulip. Up until then I thought it was a chicken!! Think I need to go get my eyes tested. x
