A Color Combo So Nice...I Used it Twice!

I just had so much fun playing with this color combo and creating my own patterned paper and flower embellishments on the two cards I have to share today.

The first card was based on the Card Patterns Blog Sketch # 19. The handmade flower embellishment was a technique I picked up from an on-line tutorial on the Studio Calico Blog.

I decided to use the same color combo and hand stamped patterned paper for the next card as well. I created the blue and green patterned paper by first stamping the damask design in kiwi kiss ink onto the aqua card stock, then I set that aside to let it dry. Once it was dry I stamped the French script with Versamark over the damask pattern and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I also heat embossed the patterns onto the die cut flowers, which I made using my Making Memories Slice machine.

I hope you enjoy,
