Colour INKspiration #08



Welcome to the Colour INKspiration blog hop, this fortnight I am taking part in the hop as Guest Designer - what an honour! Here are the colours for this fortnights challenge:


Love the little duckies in this scene! I took quite some time to decide on my creation as these colours are not natural to me, but hey! that is the great thing about challenges - you get out of your comfort zone and stretch yourself.  In the end I decided the Touches of Texture set would work a treat with this colour selection


I started with the watercolour stamping of the flower with Delightful Dijon, then stamped the detail using Tip Top Taupe and Soft Suede, off setting a little each time I stamped, and finished with a layer of gold embossing. I repeated the same process for the stem and Sentiment (from Rose Wonder). Adding a layer of Delightful Dijon on top of the Early Espresso card base really made the flower pop


The final touch was to add some "splatter" by loading up my aqua painter and flicking onto the card - perfectly ties in withe to watercolour stamp for the flower base :) 

Next on the Blog Hop is the amazing Bronwyn Eastley, enjoy!
