Colour INKspiration Challenge #02

Hello lovelies!

I'm back to share a card or two that I have done for the Colour INKspiration Challenge #02.

For this challenge we had to use these colours, plus any neutrals you want to use.

 Oh, so pretty! I've added Sahara Sand as a neutral to make my composition. The flower image is from the Avant-Garden Stamp Set that you can earn for free from the Sale-a-bration catalogue when you spend $90. Yep! and there is that butterfly again from Butterfly Basics, I do like it!

I had so much fun making this card, I love colouring stamp images and also tried a new technique that I hadn't done before, embossing embossing! See the little Stitched Framelits Circle? I firstly embossed it in the Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (this one gets the award for the longest product name! Can you find a longer one??) and then inked up the raised sections with Versamark Ink & silver embossing powder and heated with my heat gun until the magic happened. I really like the effect.

I so enjoyed working with these colours and seeing as everything was out, I made another card. Something with a few less elements.......

This is the other flower from the same stamp set, so pretty with the watercolour effect. I have very little in my stash that is Mint Macaron except for this washi tape that comes from the Affectionately Yours Designer Washi Tape. Thank goodness I purchased it as I would've been in a bit of a pickle! To tell you the truth I only bought the washi tape set for the roll with the copper foil polka dots, anything copper I do NEED. For this card I didn't want the look of washi tape stuck down, I wanted it loose so I stuck it on some vellum and made it more like a strip of paper.

I hope you like my cards today and if you would like to check out the amazing projects that the Designer Team created you can start by clicking HERE for the Colour INKspiration Blog Hop.
