Color Q (Color Q Color Challenge) - CQC #65
I really like the combination of colors in the inspiration photo...take a look!
Here is my card ~
Bringing together these colors proved to be a little more difficult than I thought. I guess that's why they call it a "challenge"! I used a dry embossing technique for the hydrangea, that I had not used before. I saw a video tutorial by Dawn O. that showed how easy this technique is...and it was easy. The image is stamped onto vellum, then embossed with a stylus from the back of the sheet. Fun and easy!
I wish you could reach into the pics and feel the raised areas of the flower. Here is the link to Dawn's video...
