CBC #65 Belli Color Challenge- Join in!


This week our Creative Belli Challenge is to use the Stampin' Up colors of Apricot Appeal, Cameo Coral, and Certainly Celery. I hope you can join us, you can always use the closest thing that you have to this combination.
For my card I started with a Cameo Coral base. The next layer is Certainly Celery run through the Big Shot with the new SU Texturz plate "Damask", I sponged some additional celery ink on the edges.
For the flowers I embossed them using Versamark and white embossing powder. Stamp set is Fifth Avenue Floral. I used my re-inkers and an aquapainter to color and added additional color by sponging around edges. The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations on Whisper White. Arranged the flowers around this white oval, some were raised up a bit on dimensionals.
