Embossed Floral Card ~ Color Dare # 487

 Are you ready for a really fun color challenge? Our Color My Heart Design Team has just what you're looking for! 

Using shades of green pair it with ONE metallic or glitter color. Black, White and Neutrals are free to use. Make any paper craft you like. When you're ready to join the challenge use the link in the post on our home page to add your artwork. 

I'm also sharing with these other challenges:

Double Trouble - Bring on the Green

Heart 2 Heart - Going Green

For my project I decided to do a card and kept it very simple in design and color. I Embossed my image (Gold Powder, VersaMark Pad, Heat Tool) then painted only the leaves with touches of green watercolor paint.  I also splattered some of the paint on the card front. The gold was continued by using Gold Foil paper. The sentiment was stamped in black ink.

Here is a close-up of the flowers and splattered. I also added three Gold Glitter Gems as an accent. 

The inside of the card was kept simple, too. Just a sentiment and some flowers stamped in Black and Clover inks.

The Thoughtful Florals stamp set is a unique set. It's a set of 10 images. The floral image at the bottom is actually ONE stamp making it a great choice for Slimline cards and layouts. For my card I only wanted the part of the image on the right. All I had to do was carefully snip the acrylic stamp apart to make two stamps. I can use it as one larger image by just putting them on the block and matching up the cut. Very cool!
