Inkspiration Colour Challenge #13

WOW, it's Friday already, the week just flies by!! The Inkspiration Challenge for this week is this fabulous colour combo:
And here's what I've come up with - I had to laugh though. These are the pefect colours for a masculine card, but instead, I've come up with something pretty!!
A cute 'little' bag and matching card. The card is a standard size, so you are able to judge by that - the little bag is quite small, BUT very cute. Perfect for a small gift or some chocolates.

There's lots of Old Olive in both the card and the bag. I've used Fifth Ave Floral, the very beautiful rose image. I've stamped the image onto the base card and also on Watercolour paper, so I could colour in with my ink pads and aqua painter and get that lovely watercolour effect. Then I've cut out and sponged the edges, mounting onto the card with dimensionals.
The small strip of DP is from Urban Garden and worked perfectly to make up the colours.
I've used my eyelet border punch on the Vanilla strip. Across the top, I've added some paper piercing and the word friends, which I've picked up with the SU marker pen in choc chip from the Best Yet stamp set.
Here's a closer look at some of the detail.

On to the little bag - I've kept the style similar to the card, imitating the strips of cardstock and DP. For the flower embellisment, I've cut out some chocolate felt, added a button and tied off with some twine. The handle is with the grosgrain choc chip ribbon.


So there you have it, hopefully I've inspired you with these fabulous colours. If you would love to join in the fun, check out further details here.
And then be further inspired by Makeesha and her lovely Design Team:
Have fun with it and I look forward to seeing some great creativity!
It's the start of school holidays, two weeks of no routine and rushing around; lots of time to relax with the kids. I'm going to enjoy it. So til the next time I get back here......

What a gorgeous use of these colours, when, as you say, they really are good for a masculine card, but this is a beautiful card, suitable for the most feminine of women. A lovely card, Jo
