Best of flowers in Calypso Coral

Love this new colour.  It's Calypso Coral, a previous in-color come back as part of the subtles collection.  As promised, here is the fourth image from June's 'best of' stamp set. Do you like?

I used Basic Gray to stamp the image on Whisper White card, then coloured in using marker pens in, you guessed, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzazz.  All new colours this year - Pear Pizzazz being another returning previous 'in-color'. I know I've been inconsistent with UK/US spelling of some words but it's spelt 'in-color' in the catalogue so there you go.

That label is one of the dies from the Apothecary Accents set - a perfect size for this image. Paper piercing was made easy using the coordinating template from the Essentials paper piercing pack.  There are three paper piercing packs to choose from on page 179 of the main catalogue.  Do contact me if you would like your very own copy of the catalogue.

I coloured the pearl by mixing a drop of re-inker with a little Crystal Effects then paint on and leave to dry well before placing on your project. It can get a little messy around the edges, as we found out at a recent workshop, so be careful.

As usual, the inside and the envelope have been finished off to coordinate with the front of the card. Thank you for visiting. Come back tomorrow to see my bright and cheerful design using the new Gorgeous Grunge stamp set!
