Flaming Colors

As You See It Challenge: Challenge #220 Fragile Flames

The color challenge at the As You Can See It Design Team member LeAnne is a color challenge to incorporate Poppy Parade Grapefruit Grove, Mango Melody and Whisper White. Gorgeous SU colors so thanks to our Buddy Lisa I was able to find substitutes for these colors with the inks I have on hand. I used Memento Rhubarb Stalk and two colors from Kaleidacolor inks. My cardstock besides the white is GKD’s Lipstick Red which I believe is close to the Poppy Parade. After sponging a background I die cut a frame using Waffle Flowers A2 dies and die cut the SSS Carnation Frame die multiple times, inlaid the petals into the die and then cut the carnation once more in the lipstick red cardstock. It needed to “pop”.My sentiment is from SU’s Upsy Daisy stamp set.

    1. Thanks, Gerry, the challenges are a little easier when their are specific colors to work with especially when you like them.

  3. This is so lovely! I like the blended background – it’s got wow, as has your gorgeous inlaid flower. Such a pretty use of the colours! Thanks for playing along with us at As You See It Challenge.

  4. Gayle this is beautiful! I love how you incorporated the blended colours not only in your pretty flower but in the background frame too and your layering works really well. Love the red outlines and the black-on-red sentiment, which is really striking. A great card! Thanks for sharing with us over at AYSI this week!

  5. Gayle, you really made a striking card! I love the blended background, and that flower and frame really stand out. You did a great job of colour matching! Thanks for joining us at As You See It Challenges!
