Embrace Life Challenge Card

Embrace Life by Stampin' Up card
Today's challenge at SCS was a tough one. The challenge was to combine three past challenges in one, the baby wipe technique, a color challenge (creamy caramel and bravo burgundy) and a sketch.

I didn't have any Bravo Burgundy, but I did have a pretty good non' SU burgundy. It looks brown in the photo, but it really is burgundy.

For the baby wipe technique, I put a few drops of River Rock ink (Stampin' Up)and Butterscotch (Adirondack) ink on a folded baby wipe and then rubbed that on a piece of vellum. I ran the vellum through my Cuttlebug, using the Swiss Dots folder.

The flowers are from Embrace Life (Stampin' Up). I colored them with water color pencils and heat embossed them with clear.

Thanks for visiting and have a terrific day!
