MFT Summer School – Complementary Colors

I have been trying to participate in some of the Summer School lessons this week from My Favorite Things, and so I created this card for Lesson #7 on Complementary Colors.  It’s no secret that any shade of orange paired with blue (actually an aqua blue is more my preference!) is always a favorite for me!  So this lesson was right up my alley!

Here’s the card I created using the Sweet Sunday Sketch #278 for the layout, and the new CAS-ual Chic Utterly Adorable Layers challenge…

Happy For You Tulips

I stamped these gorgeous tulips from the LJD Spring Tulips on watercolor card stock with Versamark ink, then heat embossed with detail white embossing powder, and colored them using my fabulous Zig Clean Color watercolor markers.  The tulips were die-cut with the matching Die-Namics.  On the Berrylicious card stock background panel I stamped the BG Fine Chevron background using Grout Gray hybrid ink.  I added a Peach Bellini die-cut circle behind the tulips that was cut with the Blueprints 24 Die-Namics, and layered the circle under a strip of vellum.  I stamped the sentiment from Totally Happy on a strip of Steel Grey card stock using Sweet Tooth pigment ink that was heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Under the sentiment I added a Sno Cone card stock banner flag that was cut with Blueprints 24.  A few enamel dots completed my design.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
