Hello and Happy Wednesday! It's time for another Color Dare! This week, Riley has us using a twist on the classic pink, green, brown scheme for CD#101: Regal Rose, Old Olive, and Early Espresso.
Now, truthfully, I rarely use regal rose. In fact, I probably use it less than any other pink. But oh my, with this early espresso, I love it! I will be using it more now, for sure! All of my products here are from Stampin' Up! I used an early espresso card base, and added a large layer of regal rose, embossed with the vintage wallpaper folder in my Big Shot. I rounded 2 opposite corners just for a simple detail. The layer is embellished with striped grosgrain ribbon and a large antique brad. The whole layer is popped up on dimensionals. The main image is from Style Beautiful...a new set for me. I stamped with my early espresso craft ink spot on very vanilla, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I used my blender pen to color in the image with the old olive and regal rose ink pads, then added a layer of old olive card stock. The sentiment is from You're a Gem, and it fit perfectly in my 1" circle punch! I sponged it lightly and popped it up with a dimensional. I still needed just a little something, so I added 3 basic jewel pearls. Love the contrast on the dark card base!
For the inside, I used my markers to color a sentiment from On Your Birthday and the corner image is from Style Beautiful. I meant to use my regal rose marker on the verse. Oops. Not re-doing it!
Hope you enjoy this color scheme...Join us and upload your beautiful creations! Be sure to use keyword CD#101.
