Inkspiration Colour Challenge #14

Happy Friday everyone. It's a gorgeous day here, the sun is shining and it's starting to feel like Spring. On to this weeks challenge from Makeesha. It's time for a colour challenge and here are the lovely colours we had to work with:

And here's my creation:

I've used the Friends 24-7 stamp set; one of my favourites. And today I chose to use the beautiful flower image from this set.

So I've started off with my base card in Basic Grey and used the En Francais BG stamp in Basic Grey ink.

Then I've layered some assorted pieices of cardstock in Pretty in Pink, Basic Black and Whisper White to make up the card layout. On the Pink, I've stamped the flourish image in Pretty in Pink ink. On the Whisper White, I've inked up the flower image in Stazon black, stamped onto the cardstock, then coloured in with ink pads and Aqua Painter. I've stamped the flower a second time onto some white cardstock, so I could cut out the little flowers and mount them onto the card - creating more of a 3d look. I've added some glitter to these flowers too.
I've used the sentiment from the same set and used the Eyelet border punch to go under the words.
Then I've finished off my card with some ribbon that I had in my stash and some small pink rhinestones.

Here's a closer look at the flower detail:

Well, I had fun with these colours - they lend themselves to the elegant side, I think - soft and pretty. If you would love to join in with this weeks challenge, head over to Makeesha's Inkspiration Challenges and you will find all the details as well as her own creation using these colours.

I love this card, Chantelle - as you say, the colours lend themselves to the elegant, and that word perfectly describes your card. I love how you have popped the flower image, and added the glitter, Jo
