Good Intentions

I had good intentions of sharing a card with you all last night, but I post my pics via photobucket and it didn't want to play fair. I also had good intentions with the card below, but it ended up being late for the recipients birthday. Ah well, better late than never!

I just love the combination of Cameo Coral and Apricot Appeal, and lately I've been adding some other warm tones to the mix. But for this card I decided to go for a contrast of greens and use Certainly Celery and Old Olive (and a bit of Taupe grosgrain). I coloured the chipboard but dragging and pressing it into the Celery inkpad, then using the Celery marker to fill in any spots that were missed. The Touch of Nature flower was stamped on watercolour paper with StazOn Jet Black and coloured using an aquapainter and inkpads. The words are from Everyday Flexible Phrases. All products by Stampin Up! and available for purchase for me (where ever you are in Australia). Please contact me if you'd like to place an order.
