Last Minute at FSC

Hi - I am ashamed to admit I missed the start of our first challenge of 2014 over at FSC - just couldn't get myself organised, but here better late than never is my card using the gorgeous colours Yvonne chose for us to use - Raspberry, Chocolate and Cream...Yum!! 

I masked the stamped flower (Stamp Addicts) and used the Ombré technique with distress inks on the background. My original plan had been to colour the flower with raspberry - but after removing the mask I liked it as it was, so just added the ribbon and rose for a splash of colour -  Oh and some ink splatter on the card itself. I also spritzed some chocolate dylusions ink across the bottom and flicked some water about on the background for a bit more interest.  

You still have a few days to join in with our challenge - don't forget we MUST see some stamping on your entry - NO Digi Stamps.  As always our sponsor is Flonzcraft and The winner of the challenge will receive a voucher for $20. 

I'm sharing my card here also -
