JustRite background challenge card


Hello All!

The new current challenge at JustRite is It's in the Background.  
For the card I wanted to go with a happy botanical theme.  I stamped and embossed the JR Moroccan Background stamp in white onto some sky blue card stock.   
Next I clear stamped/embossed the JR Secret Garden background stamp onto vellum.  I colored the flowers and leaves using Tim Holtz distress markers.  To make the colors pop and to see the clear embossed details on the flowers and leaves I applied "white out" to the back of the coloring.  Doing this makes the colors richer, shows the clear embossed areas and also prevent the Moroccan Background from showing through the colored areas.  (see the white details in the flowers and leaves below)
card, Detailed scallops, idea, Just Rite, JustRite, Moroccan Background, Secret Garden, Spellbinders, thanks, to make,
The card base is Spellbinders Detailed Scallops.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day!
Hugs,
Kathy Jo
