Tone on tone stamping for GDP#105

This week's Global Design Project (GDP #105) challenge is a colour challenge and I have to admit I find colour challenges the trickiest. However, when I saw this weeks colour combo of Peekaboo Peach, Tangerine Tango and Lemon Lime Twist, I was excited to see where I could go with it and this is the card I came up with. 

I possibly cheated a smidge by incorporating a bit of copper and some woodgrain Designer Series Paper in the design but don't you just love the contrast?

Its no secret that I love the Oh So Eclectic stamp set and Eclectic Layer thinlits, the flowers and leaves really lend themselves to tone on tone stamping which is why the flowers look great with a Peakaboo Peach background and Tangerine Tango details. To achieve the same tone on tone effect with the leaves I inked up the watercolour leaf stamp with Lemon Lime Twist and then stamped it first on a scrap of paper before stamping the image on Whisper White card so get a lighter image then I've stamped the detail in full strength Lemon Lime Twist.

Do you notice the embossed detail behind the flowers? Stampin' Up! have included some emboss only dies in the Eclectic Layers thinlits. These thinlits are a great way to add little embossed detail to your projects without embossing a whole panel.

Thanks for stopping by. If you want to see some other amazing projects featuring this colour combo be sure to pop over to the Global Design Project page, you are going to love what the GDP designers have come up with.
