A Cheerful Thank You JRC_075

I made this card for JustRite Friday Challenge #075 - Color Challenge. This week we are to use the colors aqua, apricot and orange.

For my motif, I used CL-03685 Spring Rose Medallions - Cling and cut it with JB-10025 Nested Oval Medallion Labels Dies.

I colored the roses and borders with apricot and orange and just put touches of aqua in the dots at the top and sides of the motif, then colored the trellis background with a lighter shade of aqua. I used Copics for the apricot and darker aqua, but I didn't have an orange Copic, so I used a Staedtler marker for the orange. I also used a Derwent water color pencil for the lighter aqua, because I only had one aqua Copic, and it is quite bright.

I tried a lot of backgrounds, but the one I liked best was apricot with light yellow. Somehow using aqua or orange in the background didn't work for me on this particular card. The background paper is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, and I added Queen and Co pearls. All the distressing is done with Distress Antique Linen.
