More Complementary Colours For Country View Crafts

Good morning and happy Wednesday. For my second piece for the Country View Craft's challenge, I am using 2 pairs of complementary colours, red / green, and blue / orange.

I chose some of my favourite PaperArtsy stamps by Tracy Scott and started stamping, then I made a mess and started all over again!

So, background take 2! I just need to choose my complementary paints.
If I had to pick a favourite colour it would be Beach Hut, but I have to say I've not yet come across a PaperArtsy Fresco that I didn't like! 
So after much tongue sticking out (yes I really do, I'm such a child), my background is painted.

Then I chopped it up and layered it all onto black card.

I've stuck it all down again with foam tape so it's one to be hand-delivered otherwise it will have to be parcel post! For some reason I seem to have changed the original orientation - luckily I don't think it makes a difference.
I hope you like it, and that you join in with our challenge - remember that you must use complementary colours - that's the whole theme of the challenge.
Take care and have a very happy week x


  1. Wow Sue, this layered card is awesome!!! I absolutely love the result and the colours look amazing on your flowers!!! Have a great week!!! xx

  3. Sweet color play, Sue, but I really love the card design. Chop away!

  4. I was thinking of making this type of card [1] with circles but I would need the dies, quite hopeless with all cutting! Very striking with the contrasting colour scheme! x
    [1] I'm sure this technique had a name, but for the life of me, I can't come up with it!
