Inkspiration Color Challenge #17

Hi everybody,
I was so glad to see Makeesha’s Inkspiration color challenge on her blog. This is the first challenge for this year.Here are the colors for the challenge
Mmmmm!, these are colors I will use in different combinations. I like to use So Saffron, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla together. Similarly, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla and Cameo Coral together. It was a challenge for me to use So Saffron and Cameo Coral together with Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. A lot of thought went into it. But then, I took out the cardstocks and laid it on the table and I felt it was not so bad as I had thought! So this is what I came up with. I am pretty happy with it.

The flowers I made using some old music sheets I had in my stash. I punch some scalloped circles out of them, inked the edges, adhered 6 layers (for one flower) using a brad, scrunched each layer except the last one. I then opened the layers and added a button in the centre. Dawn Mcvey has a tutorial on her blog. Aren’t the flowers beautiful? I love them.
Petal Pizzaz was my first stamp set I bought with the starter kit. I haven’t used them in a long time. Time had come to pull the set out and I used the leaf from the set for this card. The leaves are heat embossed with clear embossing powder on chocolate chip ink. Felt a bit weird stamping chocolate chip color leaves. But it looks nice on the card.Sentiment is from Sweet Little Sentiment hostess set.
 Thanks for the color challenge. I enjoyed making this card.
Have a great weekend

  1. OOOOOOhhhhhhh Gayatri! I love your card. Simply stunning! I actually love the brown leaves it gives the card a Australian bush blossom feel to it! And just in time for Australia Day! Love it.
    Thanks for playing!


  2. You've done a beautiful job with making the flowers and making your card. I hesitated a bit too about the leaves in my card but in the end I coloured them with the chosen colours and I love it. I would never have done it otherwise, which is why challenges like this are so great.
