Twinkling Echoes


This card is for Viva la Verve! February Week 1 which you can find out about here.

The colors used in the image are from SCS Color Challenge 198 which was to use Orchid Opulence, So Saffron, Cameo Coral. I used Twinkling H20s to paint the flower. I was going to make another card for the that color challenge but I decided not to. Since I had the image already colored I used it for this card I made for VLVFeb01.

I think the color combo is kind of wild with the orchid opulence ribbon and eyelets.

Recipe:
Stamps: Echoes of Kindness - SU
Paper: Handsome Hunter, Orchid Opulence, Basic Black, WW - SU; Berry Sorbet - PTI
Ink: Stazon Black
Accessories: Cuttlebug, embossing folders, nestabilities, Twinkling H20s, brads, flower eyelets, ribbon, Martha Stewart eyelet border punch, pastels for shading around image.

The colors are wonderful. I, especially, love the H2O's that you used for the flower. Very subtle yet sparkly!

How did you get the shine on the flowers? Did you emboss in clear or is it the paper you used?
