Hello and Welcome to our Colour INKspiration challenge again!!
This time we have these amazing colours:
Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe, Soft Suede, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla
and these colours are in my COMFORT zone!
I really love the neutrals, and monochromatic themes, and soft suede is one of my favourites!!
My card features a retiring stamp set and punch combination (sad face) - Grateful Bunch and the coordinating Blossom Bunch Punch - and these products have enjoyed a full and busy life in my craft room!! I love the way you can get LOTS of gorgeous flowers of 3 different sizes with some stamping and punching.
This card also features another of my favourites - collage stamping - lots of images stamped in a cluster to create the focal point. There's a repeat of the stamping on the inside of the card too.
In the centre of the front of the card, I've sponged over the top of a Lace Doily with Soft Suede to anchor the whole embellishment cluster and then stamped the lace image with Soft Suede too The leaves are stamped in Tip Top Taupe, and the greeting and butterfly are stamped in Early Espresso.
All the flowers are stamped in Delightful Dijon and then coloured a little with the Early Espresso watercolour pencil which has been blended using the Clear Wink of Stella Brush. All of this stamping looks really gorgeous on the Very Vanilla background, and I'm super pleased with the result.
I really hope you've been inspired by my project AND all the amazing projects from the whole design team - keep hopping all the way around by following the Next button............
