Tuesday colour challenge

I made this card today for a colour challenge of Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi and Certainly Celery. I don't have any SU papers and so always have to improvise. It was a good chance to use my new Sara Kay 'Rosalie's Bicycle' stamp. I've been admiring this one for a while and finally got it yesterday. It's just such a gorgeous design by a fabulous artist.

I stamped the image in versafine, coloured with prisma pencils and Sansodor/oms and a paper stump, trying to match the colours. I cut the image out with a scalloped rectangle nestability and layered on pale green Bazzil Bling with has a lovely sheen to it, a mid green and Burgundy bazzil. The card blank is embossed in the cuttlebug with the textile folder and pounced with Pebbles pearlescent chalk. The sentiment is from a Woodware family sentiment set, stamped with versamark and chalked over. I've finished the card with green organza ribbon attached under the image panel and some gems.

There are some more great sneak peaks on the Spiral Whisper blog today with lots more to come. The designs are fabulous and I hope you can have a look at the new previews, the link is in my blog list.

Enjoy the fabulous weather and back soon.
