Stampin' Up! Oh So Eclectic Card #GDP097

Hello again, lovely Peaches! Today I'm participating in the weekly challenge over on the Global Design Project  page. This week is a color challenge and I'm excited to share my card that I've submitted for the challenge.

Update: my project was chosen as a winner for the week's color challenge!

The color challenge this week is using Crumb Cake, Berry Burst, and Wild Wasabi. If you would like to see all the amazing project samples, along with the weekly challenge, click here. I just love this combination together, the bright berry with the softer green and neutral colors. 

I started with with some embossing paste, mixed with some Berry Burst re-inker, and used the Window Box Thinlits die to create a floral mask. I applied my Paste and you'll notice that the paste is a lighter shade of the Berry color. I did this intentionally because I wanted it to stand out on my Berry Burst cardstock background. You can influence the intensity of the color of your paste based on the amount of ink you add. If you would like a lighter color, use less ink or dilute with some water. If you want a more intense color, the ratio of re-inker to paste will change. You can just experiment to find the shade you are looking for. It's also fun to create new colors by mixing different ratios of different inks together. There are so many possibilities!

I stamped, die-cut, and added some leaves and a flower to my panel. I took some Crumb Cake cardstock and heat embossed my sentiment. Then as a final touch, I added some iridescent sequins to the center of my floral image. I just love how these sequins take on the color of the images around them, in this case, the flower. It was almost like I had the perfect matching sequins which I love! Well, that finishes my card for today! I hope you like today's project. Thank you so much for stopping by. See you next post!
