Stampendous and Sympathy Card
OK - I promise this will be my last card I enter in the July challenge at Stampendous - to use citrus colors - yellow, orange, lime.
The card is made out of watercolor paper. I cut the paper with a Spellbinder die and used the negative to make the green focal point. I inked the area with a lime green chalk ink - actually a $1 ink I bought at Michael's. I then stamped the flower and used Prismacolor Pencils to color the flower. An SRM Sticker completes the card. I added a band of orange ribbon at the bottom with a big bow. The center portion is pop dotted.
It is bright for a sympathy card but I think it turned out beautiful - it was a technique that I have been wanting to try. What are your thoughts on the color for a sympathy card?
