Well I don't know about the old saying but I do like these two colours together. Glorious Green and Tempting Turquoise were the colours used on the Fifth Avenue Floral rose doing the reinker float technique. I used shimmer white cardstock because the shimmer in the c/s shines through the ink when the colours are dry. Now the combination of colours and basic sketches are attributable to Alisa Tilsner who was published in a papercraft magazine with a set of cards similar to these.
A friend of mine had the article and wanted to learn how to do it, but she didn't want to use different colours. So to make sure I could do it properly, I made my own using just the rose and instead of the watercolour paper, shimmer c/s. Sue was thrilled with the technique and absolutely loved playing.
I've changed some of the embellishments, used a textured impressions emb folder and different sentiment stamps to make the cards more "me".
The shimmer c/s was stamped with versamark and them white embossed. After doing the colours I let the whole sheet of completed flowers dry and cut them out closely to the embossing.
The first card was completed without the embossing, then after another friend of mine suggested something on the T/Turquoise background, I did the rest using the embossing folder which makes them look heaps better.
Thanks for visiting again today.
