2-4-6-8-Help Flourishes Celebrate - Celebrate Colour Challenge

For the Celebrate Colour Challenge at Flourishes I decided to make a one layer bridal shower card. I don't often make single layer cards, not sure why, they can work up pretty quickly. I used the sketch 'Freshly Made Sketches #49'.

I masked off a 1-1/4" strip across my card using post-it notes. I then sponged on ink in the four colours of this challenge. Stamped the umbrella images in Versa Mark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. A few score lines and a bit of baker's twine and it's done.

Supplies - Card size is A2

Paper - White Daisy CS (CTMH)
Stamps - April Showers, Tag Lines (Flourishes)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Blush, Sorbet, Sweet Leaf and Crystal Blue ink (CTMH), Versa Mark & White embossing powder
Accessories - Baker's Twine (May Arts), Bitty Bud (CTMH)
Other - corner rounder, score board & stylus (MS), post-it notes, heat gun
