Katzelkraft S5/C2

I find colour schemes really hard to work with. What I usually do is look at the colour combination and write down the inks I have that are closest in colour. This colour combo was really hard to match - I tried my inks, I tried my coloursoft pencils (I have all 72 of them) and I tried a pack of Japanese rice paper that has a great selection of hues and tones. The colour scheme is below and in addition the card had to have some embossing:

Numbering the colours from the top I thought 2 looked like Brilliance pearlescent jade and 5 Brilliance pearlescent beige. I found Japanese papers for 3 & 4 but 1 had me stumped. I finally found the closest colour I had was the reverse of some black magic colour core card. I cut small banners and embossed the card base with an Embossalicious lattice folder.
  1. Reverse of black magic colour core card stamped with a KTZ border stamp in Brilliance jade.
  2. Reverse of black magic colour core card embossed with swiss dots folder.
  3. Japanese paper stuck on card and embossed with CB star border folder.
  4. Japanese paper stuck on card and embossed with candy cane folder.
  5. Ivory card stamped with KTZ border stamp.
The sentiment is by Hero Arts stamped with Brilliance jade.


  1. Your colour matching is fab! I love the little banners and they look brilliant on the embossed background xx

  2. I do admire your tenacity Rukhshana :) You have produced another fabulous card and that lattice background is so pretty.

  3. Another great Christmas card for the challenge. Love the bunting using the colours in the picture and the lattice background.
