Color Cue {7} Challenge

Stamps: Hero Arts & Paper Trey

The Color Cue {7} Challenge uses aqua, gold, red and white/cream and here's my take on it. I used Distress Inks on white cardstock for the solid colors under each flower. I stamped the flowers in black ink on white cardstock and then used aqua, gold and red colored pencils. Each flower image was then matted on black cardstock and foam mounted to the colored rectangles for more interest. I adhered the flower images to white cardstock that was embossed with a Cuttlebug dot folder. It was then matted with black and then adhered to a white card. I added the sentiment at the bottom to finish it off. TFL!
