Watercoloured Florals - Colour INKspiration Challenge #167


  Hi there and welcome!

Today I'm sharing a card created for Colour INKspiration Challenge #167.  Our inspiration photo was chosen by fellow Crew member, Bronwyn Eastley and our Guest Designer for this Challenge is Gail Ellis.  I can't wait to go and see what everyone has created. There's more information below if you would like to join our Challenge Group on Facebook.

We have a lovely palette to work this time and as we're allowed to being in neutrals, I've added Gray Granite which helped in my shabby chic design. My card features the Textured Florals Stamp Set and co-ordinating Dies, the sentiment comes from Sweetly Scripted which I thought fitted in quite nicely.

The background was created using the Eyelet 3D Embossing Folder which I then brayered White Craft Ink onto.  

To create each of the images, I applied ink to each stamp and lightly spritzed with water.  This gives a soft watercoloured appearance.  These were then attached to the card front with Dimensionals. Sequins from the Adhesive-Backed Sequins Trio to add some sparkle. 

I adhered a strip from the embossed black cardstock and trimmed it with with a piece of Pretty In Pink cardstock to finish the inside.
