4CC #333 - Navy, Gold, Coral

Happy Thursday!

Hope everyone is having a good week and
not too snowed in,
 (if you're in the northern hemisphere)!

It's time for another challenge at
4 Crafty Chicks
so come play along with us!

I'm hosting this week and this week is COLOR!

4CC #333 - Navy, Gold, Coral

This is one of my favorite color combos!

Please stick to using just these colors as it is a color challenge week.  
You may use neutrals as well. 

If you didn't come from the Hen House to my blog,
make sure you stop by there and check out the rest of the team's beautiful projects!

Here is my card ---

STAMPS: Peony Bouquet (Altenew); Sentiment - Fond Expressions 2 (Stamplorations)
PAPER: Navy, gold cardstock; Watercolor paper.
INK: Calypso Coral (Stampin Up), Gold Color Shine spray ink (Heidi Swapp)
EXTRAS: Peony Bouquet Dies (Altenew); Wheat Die (Reverse Confetti); Scallop Tag Layer (Reverse Confetti); stitched scallop border (Avery Elle).

I have been wanting to ink up those new peony stamps from Altenew for a while and with this color combo, I thought it would be perfect to make coral peonies.  I stamped them on watercolor paper with Versamark, embossed them in gold and then used a water brush with Calypso Coral ink to paint them before die cutting them. On the side, you can't see well because it's navy on navy, but there is a scalloped stitched border.  I know those are wheat leaves, but I think they make cool flower leaves too.  ;)

I hope you will ink up some stamps and play along with us this week!

For Following Challenges:

My "New" was new stamps/dies

Crafty Chicks Blessings!
