Clearly Besotted Challenge - Colour

Hello there and welcome to February's Clearly Besotted Challenge! Stephanie has chosen the challenge for this month as a colour challenge, following all or some of these colours:

I actually struggled with this colour palette. I love the blues but for me to combine it with the reds was a real struggle. In the end I made two cards and I am sharing my first one with you now and will share the second later in the week. For this card I used the beautiful Fancy Feathers stamp set. I stamped the smaller feather on to a panel of cardstock that I have cut using a Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Rectangles die. I have stamped it in VersaMark and then heat embossed in HA white embossing powder. Using my ink blending tool, I have blended the inks over the top. I then have stamped the sentiment from the Take Good Care set on to a piece of vellum and wrapped this around the panel. I have then added this to a card base with 3D foam pads. I have finished off with a few pearls.


The challenge will run for two weeks and the winner will receive £30 Clearly Besotted store credit. For full details on entering the challenge please visit Stephanie's Blog. Thanks so much for visiting me today. I look forward to seeing your entries.

  7. Blending is perfect and I loved those colours and the feather is too catchy..

  8. This is beautiful ,really love the embossed feather. I was wondering if the coloured ink stays off the embossing when you did the background ?
