Thinking of You - Embellish Magazine Colour Challenge

Another challenge card - this time for Embellish Magazine's Embossing Colour Challenge

Thinking of You - Embellish Magazine Colour Challenge

It was hard putting the four colours together (pink, blue, green and yellow) but I did it! Hopefully with pleasing results :)

I embossed each line using clear embossing powder with versacolor inks using the trusty old toaster (I don't emboss enough to justify spending money on a heat gun). It took me simply ages to work out where to put the sentiment until I framed it with more of the yellow. I'm glad I did because that yellow strip looked kind of weird sitting all by itself.

Size of card: C6 (A5 folded)

Card/Paper - Quill cardstock, Grant Archival plain paper
Ink - Versacolor "Orchid", "Sky Blue" and "Green Tea" and Versafine "Black Onyx"
Stamp - Hero Arts sentiment, PaperCraft border
Embellishments - Zing clear embossing powder
Tools - Fiskars paper trimmer, foam tape, Fiskars "Clouds" paper edgers, Bostik glue tape
