Colour challenge...!

I made this card for our SU team's challenge blog - this week was to make a card using the following colours: Taken with Teal, Regal Rose, Orchid Opulance and Kraft! Now when I saw those colours I thought the first three would be lovely together... but Kraft?? Not sure how that would work... But hey - I quite like how this has turned out!
I used the cluster of flowers from the True Friend stamp around the main panel. I inked up the stamp with a combination of Taken with Teal, Regal Rose and Orchid Opulence markers. Then spritzed the stamp lightly with water and stamped on Whisper White card. I repeated this process several times. I sponged around the panel with Regal Rose ink to create the hazy look.
The greeting was stamped with Regal Rose on Whisper White card and punched out with the SU oval punch. I then created layers behind it with the 1 3/8" circle punch and the scallop circle punch. I added dots with my white Signo gel pen around the scallop circle (a fave technique of mine!).
The layers in the background are Kraft DSP from the hostess paper pack. If you want this pack you've gotta host a party pr place a qualifying order before the end of September! I added some faux stitching with my SU tool kit (paper piercing part) and a Taken with Teal marker.
Here's the recipe:
Stamps: True Friend, Soft Summer
Ink: Regal Rose
Paper: Kraft DSP (hostess pack), Orchid Opulence, Taken with Teal, Whisper White
Accessories: SU markers, paper piercing tool & template, Oval punches, white Signo gel pen.
Thanks for stopping by!
