Colourful Friend card

This week on the Mod Squad Challenge Blog, the challenge is to colour your background or your focal image. At the Simon Says Stamp Blog, the Monday Challenge is Anything Goes, and the Wednesday Challenge is to make a card for a friend. Here is my card for these challenges.

I stamped the background image (Hampton Arts) on some white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured the flowers with Spectrum Noir markers using BP1, BP2 and BP6 for the pink flowers and centers, TB3, TB4 and TB5 for the blue, CT1, CT3 and CT4 for the yellow and PL1, PL2 and PL4 for the purple. For the sentiment I used a Hero Arts clear stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock. The ribbon was a piece of off-white which I coloured with the BP6 marker. I love how you can match the embellishments with the colours you use on the project.

I layered both pieces of white cardstock with some black and then pink. I layered everything onto a white card base and added a few Recollections rhinestones to the centers of the flowers for a little bling.
