Color Hues #32

Good afternoon and a Happy New Year!
I hope I find you you well, if not I send you all best wishes for a speedy recovery.
It's a new year, new month and a new challenge at Color Hues. This time we have a lovely bright, colour combination, just the thing to cheer on a dark, January day!
Here's my take.

I kept it pretty simple, blending the two colours on a pre embossed panel of white card.
The leaf spray is Memory Box and the sentiment is Mama Elephant.
The inks used were both from Altenew sets, Ruby Red and Ultraviolet, where they overlap they form a soft plummy shade of red. The colours change where the card has been stressed by being put through the EF, the name of which is lost in the mists of time! It could be a X-cut one I bought in Hobbycraft before Covid struck. 
The sentiment, heat embossed with white on black is from one of their large sentiment sets, Sending Hugs but there are some lovely small sentiments that work perfectly well on their own too.
The inked panel was trimmed and added to an A6 side fold card to complete.
For more fab red and purple inspiration, please check out the rest of the team and our GD here.

  2. Beautiful color hues and the white pops against the lovely texture. Great design, Julie! Happy New Year.

  3. Your ink blending is simply gorgeous, and I love the texture and pattern the embossing folder provides! Happy New Year!!!

  4. Such a great blended background, Julie! I also love the clean leaves and the sentiment in black! Happy New Year to you!

  5. Lovely ombre. I like the textures in the background piece too.

  6. Happy New Year, Julie! I love your ink blended background! So pretty!
