TTTC05 - Emerging Color Technique

Getting this one in as the last minute!  The challenge at The Technique Twist is emerging color.  I have done this once before so this one is not totally new to me as the other challenges have been.

My twist is that I used strips of different colors for the base of my design.  I used tangerine tango, pumpkin pie and daffodil delight and stamped En Francais with early espresso onto the strips.  Then I stamped Sunflower with Versamark and clear embossing powder.  After heat setting my sunflower image I brayered early espresso over the top of the whole layer.  Then I gently wiped over the embossed image with a tissue and out popped my sunflower with the French text.  I just added some retired ribbon and a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love your twist Carole! What a great idea to use multiple colors of cardstock as your base! Gives such great dimension to your sunflower with the script in the background! Thanks for joining us again at the Technique Twist! :)
