Power of Hope – Colour Challenge for Inspire Create Challenges. Another ICC Challenge has come around already, and this time the Design Team are bringing you a Colour Challenge. This is a great combination too.
I decided to use this challenge to have a play with one of the Level 2 Sale-a-Bration bundles; the Power of Hope Stamp Set and Stones 3D Embossing Folder. These could be yours FREE with an order of £90 or more. I am not sure which I love most, the stamp set of the Embossing Folder, they are both amazing.
To add some additional dimension, I inked the inside of the embossing folder with Pretty Peacock Ink and embossed a piece of Pretty Peacock Card. I used Designer Series Paper from the 6 x 6″ Brights Stack in the Annual Catalogue. Both were mounted on an Early Espresso Mat, with narrow margins on all sides.
The feature piece is on the smooth Whisper White card, embossed with Copper and then the colour was added with an Aqua Painter and ink from the lid of the ink pads. You do need to be a little careful using an Aqua Painter on ordinary card as it can breakdown the surface of the paper. But, be careful and you can get a really great result, really easily. I die cut this piece with one of the Oval Layering Dies and cut a scalloped oval slightly larger as a mat behind the featured piece.
The mat piece is on a Pretty Peacock card base and before adding the stamped piece with Dimensionals, I added a piece of the Scalloped Linen Ribbon in Pretty Peacock. It is a subtle addition, but makes quite a difference to the finished card. The final touches were some Champagne Rhinestones and some stamping on the inside of the card, again in Pretty Peacock.
