Inkspiration Colour Challenge

This week we have a colour challenge from Makeesha and she's picked out a gorgeous colour combo here. I really enjoyed this one.
So here's my creation. I've used the Friend 24-7 stamp set and co-ordinating wheel. When I first saw this set, I really didn't think much of it and it was far from the top of my wish list. But Convention changed all that. Shelli demonstrated with this set and created the most beautiful things. Now I love it!!
The base card is Sage Shadow onto which I've stamped flourish image in the same colour ink.
Then I've layer some Very Vanilla onto Choc Chip with the edges torn. I've used the Stampin' round wheel Friendly Words in Choc Chip ink. I've first rolled this once and then brought the wheel to the edge of the cardstock, then rolled back and forth many times to create the edge. A vintage look!
Then I've stamped up the bird image in Basic Brown, coloured in with ink pads and matted onto some Really Rust cardstock. I've used the cutter kit to distress the edges of both pieces.
Then I've finished off the card with some twill and choc chip tafetta.
With some of the left-over cardstock, I made a sour cream container (Sunny Boy). These are just so cute. You can see it peaking out from behind the card.
As I said before, these colours are just beautiful together and I'm sure I'll be using them again.

Ohhh, I like your card! I finally ordered that roller and was going to cut it up for the words, but i'm tempted to keep it whole just to use it for that look. Might need to order another one!!
