Ready for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #521? We have a lovely color challenge featuring Sahara Sand, Lovely Lipstick, and Blackberry Bliss.
Sahara Sand is one of those colors I just don't use very often. I really don't know why I don't use it more. It is a great neutral that changes how it looks depending on the colors it is paired with.
I embossed the orchids with White embossing powder on Sahara Sand card stock. Using an Aqua Painter and Lovely Lipstick ink, I colored in the orchids. I use an acrylic block inked up directly on the Lovely Lipstick stamp pad as my palette. The sentiment and orchid stems were inked using Blackberry Bliss ink.
Before I placed the orchids on the stems I embossed the Sahara Sand card stock using the Subtle Dynamic Embossing folder. This is probably my favorite embossing folder and I use it a lot. The texture it embosses is subtle and yet adds a lot of interest.
I hope you will join in the challenge. You can get all the details HERE and be sure to check out what the other designers created for this challenge.
