Card with circles - complementary colours

Hello everyone, it's already September so we have a new challenge at the Country View Challenges. The theme is Complementary colours and the lovely Evelyn is the hostess of this challenge.

My first project for this theme is a card with the six main complementary colours.

For this card, I used the Simon Says Stamp Circle Thin Frames die set. The frames were covered with Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder and the circles were inked with Ranger Distress inks (originals and oxides too). The top layer was always Oxide ink.

The black background paper was made by me. I blended different black inks onto the surface to achieve a nice even colour. 

Here are some process pictures:

And here is a colour wheel to show you the opposite colours.

The text was from the Stampers Anonymous Crazy Talk stamp set and were heat embossed with Princess Gold embossing powder.

I used the same embossing powder to create a frame for the panel under the black paper.

If you have a project with complementary colours, please don't hesitate to join our September challenge where you can win a £20 voucher.
