Inspired by the colours in this weeks JUGs and the calendar required for SCSC challenge this week. I came up with this.
The funny thing is, I had just made a card last night using the same set of distress inks that I used today. (I do have more, promise.) The colours that JUGs asked us to use were so similar, I just had to use them again. I have used several layers of ink on this one to make the colours more rich and intense. I wasn't sure about the orange textured card that I backed it onto to start off with, but the more I looked at it, the more it seemed to fit.
The flower is made from Tim Holtz Grunge paper and was coloured with Fired brick distress ink and then stamped with a dotty stamp that I bought a while ago. Again I have used fired brick, spiced marmalade and broken china on white card which I have embossed using Cuttlebug folders.
I actually made the flower several weeks ago when I was experimenting with grunge paper, but could never figure out what to put it on. It has held it's shape really well.
