Color Hues #87

I have the pleasure of being our hostess this fortnight over at the Color Hues challenge blog and I've chosen the summery duo of Coral and Teal.


As you can see, I've added in white, khaki and a bit of gold as neutrals.

And because I got carried away with the die cutting I have not only a bonus card but also a set of tags to share here on my blog.

Let's start with the cards.  I die cut the flowers from colored cardstocks and assembled them in the bottom left corner of a card panel.  In card one the florals were added after the embossing.  I was curious to see how the florals would look embossed so I added this step to card two after adhering the die cuts.  I think I prefer them without the added texture. The sentiments were heat embossed in gold and adhered to a shadow layer of white.  I added a sprinkling of embellishments to finish them off.  

My tags were created with leftover florals and cardstocks.  The scripty sentiments were stamped in black pigment ink.  The banner is an extremely old sticker from American Crafts????  (Don't quote me on that one.)  I really love making tags and sometimes they are just what you need to finish off that special gift.

I hope you'll play along with me over at the Color Hues blog.  Take a look-see at my teammies creations and add one of yours to our gallery.
