This is a 5-week month for Dynamic Duos, which means today’s challenge is Mix-and-Match, where we provide one color and you chose the other color to form your own custom pair.
Old Olive was my color of choice for this card, though I used close substitutes for these colors since I was using my Copic markers to color in a stamped and embossed image.
I’ve seen this technique done by Debby Hughes a few times – embossing in white and using pencils or markers to color in the image areas, giving it this lovely appearance – and I absolutely LOVE it! (Especially using this gorgeous image from Clearly Besotted Stamps.) Here is an example by Debby. I finally gave it a try a few weeks ago, and I think it turned out pretty well!
Not perfect, but I really love the look of this, and I can see myself using it more. I used some miscellaneous green polka-dotted DP with my favorite lace, a Stampin’ Up! brad, and a snip of Autumn Rose ribbon for embellishment.
Make sure you stop in to see what the rest of the Design Team have created and to check out the details for this challenge. I can’t wait to see what color you’ll choose to go with Primrose Petals and to see what you’ll create with them!Allyson Andersen (me) | Christina Barnes | Vicki Burdick | Karen Day | Deanna Dean
