Treat time Sweet Thank you for Colour INKspiration #37 - the Brights family

Hello and Welcome to Colour INKspiration #37 and our showcase of the Brights family!
No automatic alt text available.

We are challenged (and you are too!) to use only 3 colours from the colour family!

I have chosen to use:  Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green and Coastal Cabana.

If you follow me, you'll notice that I'm having a love affair with the Shimmery white embossing paste these last couple of weeks!! And today is no different!!

I've created a mask (which is actually a frame cut from a piece of vellum so I can see the cardstock underneath for placement) and stamped using the brilliant DistINKtive stamp set Healing Hugs for the flowers and leaves.  My greeting comes from Treat Time, and then I've lightly sponged in the white space to accentuate the masking some more.  The ink bled slightly under the vellum frame and created a messy sort of frame around the stamping - which I LOVE!  This has been reflected in a messy swish of embossing paste on 2 corners of my base card.  With the Shimmery white card stock for the stamped piece and the embossing paste framework, these cards just shine!!  

These are my thank you cards for orders this month - so I made a bunch of them!!

Now it's time to grab your favourite 3 colours from the Brights family and get creating too.  Remember to use only 3 colours + white, black or vanilla.  You can add your creative genius to our lineup at our facebook challenge page.

Until Next Time,
Happy Stamping.
Love Julia   x
