Simply Salmon

Third in my trio of Coral for today, is this serenade to salmon (Salmon Adi used as I don't have any SU inks)!

Monochrome cards really make me think, and this was no exception. I haven't quite done the adding up but I'm hoping both Viva the Verve and Colour Me are going to have five challenges this month. My crazy plan is to combine them each week, alongside an inspiration word or theme if possible.

This means that each week I'll get one extra colour to play with. This week it's monochrome - Crisp Canteloupe, hence the third in my coral series.

The imagery inspiration came from Stamping Sensations, whose key word this month is 'Flower Power'. This led me to choose a selection of floral stamps and embossing folders around which to build this card. Both folders are docrafts and the stamp is from Clarity. I wanted this to be about texture and simple colouring, so I chose to doodle around the edge rather than add a background layer.
