Navy and Pink at Our Creative Corner Colour challenge

Evening Everyone
Have you had a good day?
I have been frantically trying to get my bookmarks ready for the end of term, which is Friday. I can see a very late night in my future tomorrow lol.
We had a fabulous class at Davina's on Saturday, where we played with Frantage powders as well as Coffee and Pearlex.
Because the Coffee backgrounds needed to dry before they could be stamped and embossed on to, I decided to let the Ladies play with the Frantage embossing powders that I have, and some dye based inks. A type of embossed resist you might call it.
This card was made with the sample piece that I created while showing the ladies what to do.
I stamped and embossed the flowers using Aged Rose Embossing Enamel and then sponged Adirondack dye based inks all over the panel.
By happy coincidence there is a colour challenge over at Our Creative Corner where they are looking for Navy, Pink and one other. I chose pale blue.
I also added some dots to the flowers with a white souffle pen and some Glossy Accents.
I cut the panel up before mounting it onto navy blue card stock and adding a decoupaged flower.
I saw a challenge to make a Window card somewhere, but I can't find it now. Oh well never mind.
I hope that you like it.
The ladies at Davina's came up with some fantastic pieces of work.
This is just a small selection of them.
I am definitely going to have to try out some of their colour combos. Why is it that you always like what other people have done better than your own work?
Off to bed now
