Very Versailles is a favourite stamp set, used to create a leafy grotto for Colour INKspiration Challenge #99.
Welcome to my blog. It’s Colour INKspiration challenge CI#99 and the inspiration pic for this challenge is classicly elegant.
Very Versailles plus Mint Macaron, Just Jade, Smoky Slate and Soft Suede
Once again, I have not only used the colours from the inspiration image, but the image itself to influence my creation for this challenge.
- The background is created with a curved edge cut from cardstock and used as a stencil. I have sponged Smoky Slate ink over the edge of the curve to create the wonky stripes.
- The hanging leaves are stamped with Just Jade and Mint Macaron inks. I used the Stamparatus so I could stamp over the top with Versamark and then clear emboss. This intensifies the colour somewhat.
- I have added a touch of gold with the same leaves stamped with Heat and Stick powder and then gold leafing applied.
- A few of the collage type elements from the stamp set in Soft Suede and Smoky Slate complete the arrangement.
