Colour Throwdown Challenge #351

I found the most gorgeous colour challenge over at
and it has my favourite colour combination
Don't you just love it!
Best of all I got to use my most favourite stamp.
Being a Scot I love thistles and some years ago
while visiting my Homeland I bought the stamp
that is on this card.
I tried different ways to highlight it but came up with
the shaving cream technique.
I heat embossed the stamp which is from Heritage Stamps
in black after I had fun playing with the
shaving cream. My craft room smells nice again.
I used Stampin' Up Rich Razzleberry and
Pink Food Colouring for my 2 colours.
Here are the other products I used -
White & Black card stock
Black embossing powder
Spellbinders  Petite Ovals/Scallop Ovals
and Labels 18
Best Wishes is cut from a Cherry Lynn Die
Kaisercraft Pearls and Own Ribbon.
