TGIF Challenge #110 – Colour Combo Peekaboo Peach, Bermuda Bay & Basic Black

Today I’m joining in with this weeks TGIF Challenge #110 , to use the colours Peekaboo Peach, Bermuda Bay and Basic Black.  Initially I found this a hard combination to work with, I’m not good with the oranges colours as you know.

Anyway as I was opening my new box of goodies inspiration finally struck when I saw the Oh So Eclectic set, the watercolour effect stamps gave me the idea to create a watercolour background with Bermuda Bay and Peekaboo Peach blended together.  Although this is quite different to my usual cards I think its quite striking and was definitely fun to make.

To make the background image I took some watercolour paper and spritz it all over with water. While it was still dry I took the stamp which looks to me like a doughnut and stamped randomly with Peekaboo Peach and Bermuda Bay.

I then took the aqua-painter and dragged the colour into all the gaps to cover the whole background. I then spritzed again so the colour ran a little,  then I popped some kitchen towel over the top to soak up any excess ink.

When this was dry I stamped over my background with the large flower outline stamp in the same two colours and then to fill in the gaps took the stamp with the tiny circles and stamped any gaps with Peekaboo Peach.

To finish the card and add in the Basic Black element to the challenge I mounted my water coloured panel on some Basic Black cardstock and stamped a small greeting in the bottom right hand corner. Finally I added three of the new metallic sequins in black to draw the eye to the greeting.

I hope you enjoyed this card, I loved making it and can’t wait to get a little messy again soon. If you want to have a go at this challenge or want to see the other entries, check here.
