For this week over at Summer of Color the colour scheme is hot pink and orange. I decided to combine this challenge with the index-card-a-day challenge at Daisy Yellow.
I ended up doing six cards based on a coral theme - I had to work hard at not making them red as that is the colour I had been using for my coral based work a few weeks ago.
I used gelli prints for the backgrounds and prepared a selection of cards ready to use each day with the backgrounds already glued on. The gelli prints looked too dark against the buff background so I painted the cards cream. I then spent about half an hour a day machine stitching, gluing and hand sewing them.
