CD 501 - Ink Lifted Hello

 Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 501! 

It's an inspiration photo this week - choose at least 3 colours from the photo. 

I used dark pink, orange and green (plus black, white and gold).

The background of this card was embossed in white and then ink blended (very heavily) with three Distress Oxide inks. I used a small paintbrush and painted water over each of the flowers, lifting some of the colour. The large sentiment was die cut three times in white and once in black and after the letters were stacked, I used a black marker around the edges to cover the white. The small sentiment was embossed in white on black cardstock. The flowers and leaves were die cut and added under the sentiment and some pink and gold gems were added to the centres of the flowers. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you interpret this week's challenge. 

You have two weeks to link up your project. 

We can’t wait to see what you create! 


I created a second card using this same technique - this one was done in shades of blue and purple. The close up shows the lifted ink a little better.

LOVE!! Both cards are fantastic but I love that first one with the way you blended the colors and the pop of the black hello.

Love that floral stamp and how you kept it fresh by using white embossing. Your first card is so bright and cheery too! X
