Jewel-toned Dreams Card

The jewel tones in Stacey's Jewelry Color Inspiration Challenge this week are so pretty. But I would be lying if I said I didn't struggle with them. Well, just one in particular: Glorious Green. It's my least favorite Stampin' Up color. Thank you, Stacey, of making me stretch this week and forcing to use Glorious Green. It's really not a bad color!

I used my blender pens and the ink pad lids to watercolor the flowers. I used all four of the inspiration colors, layering the darker red and green over the lighter ones. For the flower in the left corner on the Rose Red cardstock, I used my marker and colored just the flower of the "Love You" stamp that comes in the Dreams du Jour stamp set. (Don't forget you can get this set 20% until January 18 with any $20 purchase!)


[The finished card measures 3" x 6".]

Supplies: Dreams du Jour, Basic Black ink, Whisper White cardstock, Kiwi Kiss ink& textured cardstock, Glorious Green ink & cardstock, Riding Hood Red ink & cardstock, Rose Red ink/marker & cardstock, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, 2-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Stampin' Dimensionals
