Just Another Card

I started this card last night to challenge myself in a couple of ways. First was the color challenge this week on SCS. The challenge was to use Basic Gray, Cameo Coral, and Blush Blossom. Mission accomplished. The next challenge was to learn a new technique - watercoloring using Stampin' Up! Stampin' Write Markers. I did stray from the color challenge by watercoloring the leaves with Certainly Celery and Old Olive. I also embossed the Cameo Coral and Blush Blossom layers with the Swiss Dots A2 embossing folder. Each piece is embossed 1 1/4" from the top and from the bottom. That left a strip across the center of the card 1 1/4" wide that isn't embossed. It's hard to see that part in this photo. I tried to take it from different angles, but still couldn't get the embossing to show up very well. You may be able to see it a little better by clicking on the photo to enlarge it. The ribbon is Basic Gray Taffeta from Stampin' Up! Toodles!
