A new colour challenge

Today marks the beginning of a new colour challenge over at Sunday Stamps.  I love the softness of this pallette...check it out:




Here is my project for the Design Team:

Thank you card featuring the Summer Silhouettes stamp set with sentiment from Best of Greetings (retired)
 For this challenge I went with the obivous and allowed the image in the challenge graphic to inspire me.  I used the Summer Silhouettes stamp set, which is one I love but don't pull out nearly often enough.  The background image is from the new You've Got This set and is stamped on Very Vanilla card stock in Crumb Cake ink, but stamped off twice so is was very faded.  The leaves and stems are stamped full-strength in Crumb Cake, which gives you an idea just how faded the background is.  The little flowers are stamped in Soft Sky ink.


I used pearls that I coloured using my beloved and still-going-strong Blendabilities to add the blossom on the large flower.  The band across the bottom of the stamped images is some retired This and That Washi Tape.  I layered three strips to get the width I wanted.  The sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on Very Vanilla card stock and is accented with a couple more little blue pearls.  The card front is matted on a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock before being adhered to a Soft Sky card base.

On the inside I stamped more of the images from the front, this time stamping the blossom images  in Soft Sky ink rather than using pearls.  
I loved this colour combo so much I used it on a couple of other projects...be sure to check back later this week.  In the meantime visit the Design Team blogs for more colour happiness and then be sure to play along over at Sunday Stamps!

  2. You've really inspired me to ink up this set. The pearls are the perfect finishing touch and pop of colour. Fabulous! Thanks for having me along as GD!

  3. What a beautiful card!! I love the Chocolate Chip layer (a sadly neglected cardstock in my arsenal), it makes everything else really pop!! And the layered washi tape has inspired me to pull some out and us it! Thanks for such a lovely and inspiration card!
