colourQ #343 and Essentials by Ellen May Pin-Sights Challenge

IMG_0181

Happy Tuesday!
It's time for a new colour palette at the colourQ.



I did a watercolour wash of Calypso Coral on my card front and then I embossed the Essentials by Ellen Mondo Hydrangea with gold embossing powder. The finish it off I die cut the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies Many Thanks in black and adhered it to the card panel. the entire panel was adhered to the card base with foam tape.

I used the Essentials by Ellen May Pin-Sights Challenge as inspiration for my card.
