FTTC120–Color Combination




Hello everyone~

It’s time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC120). Cindy has provided a wonderful color combination for us to play.

The colors are Cranberry, Caramel, Dark Grey and /or Brown.

You can visit Flourishes blog for more detail about how to play. Can’t wait to see your card/project!



I decided to make a Father’s Day card with the color combo. The image and sentiment are from A Guiding Light. The image was stamped and colored with Copic Markers (Flesh Tones 1, Flesh Tones 2, Cool Neautrals and Dusty Rose) and highlighted with white gel pen. The clouds on the background was sponged with two different colors – light blue and caramel. I used Lattice Rectangle Nestabilities to create the frame. The sentiment was dressed with metal label and attached with silver brads over the waved border and brown twill tape. To finish off the card, I embellished the silver pearls.




Be sure to check out other FOF’s creations!
