Today I would like to show you my entry for the Colour INKspiration Challenge #84. Our colours for this challenge are Magenta Madness, Just Jade, Rich Razzleberry, Garden Green and Rococo Rose. I couldn't resist using these lovely colours in a spring-themed card as the weather here is well and truly warming up.
I started out using a quarter piece of Whisper White card stock which I later trimmed down to the measurements needed for my double matte layer. Using a sponge, I very lightly added Just Jade ink and them Magenta Madness ink over the whole of this piece. Using a circle die cut mask, I then went back in and added more Magenta Madness ink to the the outer areas to show a more definite circle. You could also use a sponge dauber to create this same background.
Next step was to stamp the water-like stamp from Framed For You in Rococo Rose in opposite corners using second and third generation stamping to add depth. Following this, I stamped the larger flowers in Rich Razzleberry ink followed by the smaller flowers in Magenta Madness. I used second and third generation stamping in the groups of three flowers to again add depth. I then went and stamped the leaf sprig in Garden Green and the fern-like stamp in Just Jade in the open areas between the flowers to form a closed wreath.
The sentiment is from the Lovely You Stamp Set and is stamped inside the wreath in Rich Razzleberry. I used this greeting as it was a little larger that the sentiments in the Framed For You set and fitted the space better. To finish off, I stamped a some dots in Just Jade using the dot stamp from Forever Fern. No project is complete with some bling, and the Iridenscent Pearls worked perfectly.
To complete my card, I adhered my stamped piece of Whisper White to the piece of Rich Razzleberry then using Dimensionals, I stuck this onto my Just Jade card base.
I added stamping to my Whisper White insert to carry over the floral theme from the front of my card.
