Lovely Flowers for Colour INKspiration Challenge #72

Lovely Flowers Dies meets the Small Bloom Punch featured in the Sale-A-Bration offering.

Welcome to my blog … today I am posting a challenge card for Colour Inkspiration challenge #72.

Colour INKspiration Challenge #72

In addition to these four Stampin’ Up! colours, you can freely use Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Crumb Cake, metallics and skin-tone blends. This is a really simple challenge to enter, just create and post into the group on facebook!

Small Bloom Punch + Lovely Flower Dies

I wanted to use the Small Bloom Punch (a Sale-A-Bration Level 2 item), but I didn’t get the co-ordinating Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set, so felt the punched flowers needed some extra dimension. I hunted through my dies and found that two sets have little five-petalled flowers that work well … Timeless Tropical and Lovely Flower Dies.

Bermuda Bay, Grapefruit Grove, Coastal Cabana and Pretty Peacock

The watercoloured background is created with Bermuda Bay ink on Shimmery White cardstock, splattered with a darker Bermuda Bay mix.
The flowers are punched and die cut from a background piece of Water Colour Paper washed with Grapefruit Grove ink and Calypso Coral ink. The flowers are layered up and adhered in a swathe across the Bermuda Bay background.
Pretty Peacock is added as the diecut leaves, tucked in behind the flowers.

The sentiment is from the Forever Lovely stamp set, white embossed directly onto the Bermuda Bay background. The flowers have been painted with Clear Wink of Stella to create a subtle shine.

I created this card in my VIP customer group on a facebook live. I have put the recording up on my You Tube channel here and measurements are included below.

Cheryll’s Whimsy Wednesday Creative Lives
I create live on Facebook every week in my Stampin’ Up! group. You can also watch the recordings on YouTube if that is your preferred platform.

You can watch my Whimsy Wednesday lives on Facebook without being part of the group, but if you want to be notified of upcoming facebook lives or make a comment, make sure you join the group.
The only thing we do in the group is the weekly facebook lives, so you won’t be bombarded with posts!

If you haven’t visited the Colour INKspirations facebook page, before, make sure you take a look. And maybe pop a card into the colour challenge!
