Hibiscus Prayers


Just playing around and I found a new challenge to participate in.
The Color Throwdown:

Using Cobalt Blue, Kraft and Gray to make my card along with a sketch from another new to me site, Freshly Made Sketches:

Combine all these ingredients along with a little paper and ink and this is what I created:

Blue background was embossed then stamped and heat set.
Edge of base card is Washi tape.

Flowers and foliage are die cut.

Not a color combo I would have thought of, yet I like the results.

Color Throwdown  -  Color combo
