Hey folks! I'm having a blast guest designing over on the Color Throwdown blog this month. This week Tammy is the hostess, and she has picked some fun colors to play with this time. We are using navy, pink, and orange for our creations this week, and these colors just called for a bright, summery card.
I started by clear embossing a background stamp onto some watercolor paper, and then I went to town spraying all over it with some orange and pink Distress Spray Stains. I used Spiced Marmalade and Picked Raspberry and in certain places the color got a bit too intense. It's easy to fix that - I just sprayed some water over those areas and blotted off the color with a tissue. This is where using watercolor paper really comes in handy. :-)
My friend just got back from Costa Rica, and I was thinking of her while making this card. I'm sure she had at least one colorful drink while she was there, so this trio of pink and orange drinks is dedicated to her. Hee hee hee!!!
