CB colour challenge samples

 The current challenge colours are really vibrant, a definite change from the damp grey weather at the moment!

My first card uses my favourite Brusho powders and the lovely palm fan baroque ornament stamp.The stamp was stamped towards the corner of a sheet of watercolour paper, using black versafine and clear embossing powder.
I used brushos in purple, ost red and yellow randomly over the whole piece of card, but making sure that there was yellow and red on the image.
I used the purple and red as a paint to highlight the edges of the stamp and the centre to give a bit more definition to the image.
I cut round part of the image, then trimmed the rest of the card to fit onto a 15cm square white card blank - a bit fiddly, but just one layer to glue down

The second card used the same colours after first embossing the lovely big image from let your heart sing - an old stamp set, but still one of my favourites, and just perfect for these colours.
I trimmed the image right down and added a narrow mat of glossy black card.
Two pieces of left over card made the side panels with similar black mats.
Base card is 20cm square white card blank - made quite a change from my usual dl card using this stamp.


  1. Gorgeous, I would not have thought to put those colours together, they look great. Love the idea of having the ornament 'over the edge'.

  2. Gorgeous cards Vronnie! You've mad efabulous use of these strong, vibrant colours and clever way to create the obe layer of the first one. The second one is one of my favourite images too. I can hear the blackbird singing its heart out in my head as we have had a pair nesting in the wisteria all Spring and Dad perches on the TV aerial serenading us for hours....beautiful!
