Paper Play Colour challenge


















I was so pleased with the design of the card in the last post that I decided to make another in a brighter colour combination.  The embossing powder that I used this time is Antique Verdigris and it creates a lovely greeny gold shimmer.  The base card is cream and I watermarked it with Versamark and the Hero Arts flourish background stamp, the edges are lightly distressed with Bundled Sage ink.























Week 29's challenge at the Paper Play blog is Blue, Cream and a colour of your choice, as you can see my colour is green! Just a quick post today lots of washing and ironing to sort for my holiday!
