Get Well Soon - The Spot Color Challenge #161

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a card that I made for this weeks creative challenge over at the spot using a fun inking and die cut inlaid technique.  I used the Blossoms in Bloom Stamp Set and matching dies to create my card.

This is the second time I've started todays blog post.  I made one card using what I thought was the right color combination.  Only to find out once I sat down to write the blog post and got half way through and realized that I used a wrong color. So, last night at 10:30 pm I headed back out to the studio to create a card with the right color combination. 

Color Challenge: 

Before I get into the details about my card I want to share with you about this weeks creative challenge at the Spot.  This week's challenge is a color challenge with a fun set of colors.  This weeks color challenge showcases a 2021-2023 In Color (Fresh Freesia), 2020-2022 In Color (Magenta Madness) and a Core Color (Granny Apple Green).  Here's a look at the challenge card that inspired the color combination for my card.

Instead of cutting all the die cuts in different color cardstocks.  I cut them once from Basic White Cardstock and used my Gel Press and my inks to color the white cardstock die cut pieces.  I used Granny Apple Green, Fresh Freesia, and Magenta Madness Inks to color with my Gel Press.  I then placed the outline down onto a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" panel of Basic White with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, and added all the inlaid pieces like a puzzle.  Some of the pieces like the inlaids of the leaves I colored twice to get a slightly darker color.

I then heat embossed my sentiment from the Blossoms In Blooms Stamp Set with the white embossing powder from the Basics Embossing Powders collection onto a piece of Fresh Freesia Cardstock I added Basic Pearls to the center off all the large flowers and colored a few bigger pearls with my Dark Fresh Freesia Stampin' Blend before adding them to the smaller flowers.
