Bright blue and orange

Another card for complementary colours week over at the Hero Arts blog. This time it's blue and orange.
I created the background paper by inking up the large stamp in orange, then wiping away bits and colouring them in with a turquoise marker. Then I spritzed the whole thing with water, to soften it a bit. I embossed it with the Swiss Dots folder for some texture.

After that, I was a bit lost, and tried several things before I settled on this simple layout. It's hard to see, but I scored two lines on the orange layer (between and below the two ribbons). The scallops looked a little plain, so I added some dots with my white Glaze pen.

Not my favourite card, but I tried :p
