The Paper Players – PP397 – A Color Challenge from Nance

Click to enlarge.

We have a Color Challenge over at The Paper Players!  This week, our challenge host, Nance, is asking us to create cards using the Stampin’ Up colors: Calypso Coral, Lemon Lime Twist and Crumb Cake. I don’t have any Stampin’ Up colors so my colors are as close as possible.

My florals are embossed in white on kraft cardstock, and colored in with Prismacolor pencils.  The image was trimmed and mounted on a lime green card base.

Supplies: Simon Says Stamp Center Cut Flowers, Essentials by Ellen Lovely (sentiment), My Favorite Things Blueprints 13, Versamark, Hero Arts embossing powder, Prismacolors, Pretty Pink Posh sequins

    Elizabeth, the Prismas on kraft are wonderful. I never remember to do that and then always think…. why didn’t I remember to do that? Your coloring is beautiful and I love the layout. Gorgeous

    Beautiful coloring! I thought the florals were inked! I always love the look of white embossing on Kraft. Hope you had a good week ~ Hugs, Annie

    Simply stunning, Elizabeth! Love the way you’ve colored on the kraft cardstock–such a beautiful look. Great layout and I love the pop of black for the sentiment. Just fabulous!

    Embossing in white seems to be a theme this week, and your florals are proof that it is a fabulous idea! These are just gorgeous…you managed to get such intense colors, they pop right off the page!
